Historic Petersville roadhouse destroyed by fire

The Forks Roadhouse, one of Alaska's oldest roadhouses still in operation, was destroyed by fire late Tuesday, reports KTNA in Talkeetna.

The caretaker for the roadhouse returned on Wednesday to find the structure smoking. The Fire Department responded Wednesday evening, by which point the historic roadhouse had burned completely to the ground. ... The Forks Roadhouse was accessible only by snowmachine in winter, and in recent years had been open only on weekends.

Fire Department may have responded to the reporter, but I doubt it responded to the fire.

Sorry we lost another landmark. Gakona River Lodge is looking like one of the last old ones. Rebuilt in the 1920's and an excellent host running it. Sorry to be headed back to Fbks. but at least I'll get back on my diet.

Don't forget Copper Center Lodge.
Tiekel Cache still exists but has been long out of business.
Don't know if Atlasta House qualifies, but is a residence now.
How about Rika's Roadhouse?

But the old roadhouses are few and far in between anymore. Used to be about a long day apart (20 miles or so).
