Taku Glacier Lodge
Taku Glacier Lodge was built as a hunting and fishing lodge by a mining executive in 1923, but its most illustrious owner was Mary Joyce, described as “a pilot, a stewardess, a musher, a homesteader, a movie actress, a territorial government candidate,” and best known for dogsledding 1,000 miles from here to Fairbanks in 1936 for a party. Floatplanes transport visitors up to the lodge daily for salmon bakes and a chance to see the local glaciers (and the cool historic artifacts in the main timber-and-stone lodge).
