Knik Museum

About: Established in 1967, the Knik Museum and Mushers Hall of Fame honors the heritage and culture of the Knik area. Knik was an important village and trade center for Native Alaskans long before miners, trappers, tradesmen and homesteaders arrived. The village became a trailhead for the winter dog sled and summer wagon trails to mining areas and grew to a large town by the early 1900s. The gradual demise of the town began when local businesses moved to the new town of Wasilla that sprang up when the new Alaska Railroad route was built 13 miles north of Knik between Lake Wasilla and Lake Lucille.
