Welcome to Nenana


Historically, this was little more than a roadhouse until it was chosen as the base for building the northern portion of the Alaska Railroad in 1916. On July 15, 1923, President Warren G Harding arrived to hammer in a golden spike on the northern side of the Tanana. The sickly Harding missed the spike the first two times, or so the story goes, but finally drove it in to complete the railroad.
