Join us at the Tanana Valley Railroad Museum for a wonderful lecture on the captivating history of the Valdez Railroad, full of action, adventure, suspense, mystery, and seeing the struggle between the big guy and the little guy.
This free presentation has been compiled and presented by Joan Skilbred, a local historian well known for her amazing in-depth work to search out the truth of our state's amazing history. Joan has been working with local history for nearly 20 years, during which she has made great discoveries and shared her work with her community. This presentation is the work of nearly six months of research and gathering information. Joan was happy to debut her presentation for the 2019 Pioneers Convention in Valdez and hopes that you can make it to her presentation here in Fairbanks.
Space is limited in the museum. Please arrive early to ensure you get a seat. Light refreshments will be provided.
