Description

Image shows a white, two-story house in middle ground with a white picket gate and gate post arch holding a sign "Palmer House Rooms" in foreground. The "S"s on the sign are printed backwards. A man is walking on the path towards the house. Owned by Jim Felton, this was the most available lodging in the local area prior to the coming of the Matanuska Colony. Rooms reputedly contained two or more beds to accommodate all travelers, typical of Alaska roadhouses in the day.
