“The Alaskan roadhouse …. deserves and has earned the high regard that all Alaskan and northern travelers have for the roadhouse.” ~William E. Gordon, in Icy Hell (Wm. Brendan & Son, 1937)

Carpenter, Judge James Wickersham, Leonhard Seppala, Col. Walter L. Goodwin, and Matilda Clark Buller, who opened a roadhouse near Nome in 1901, at the height of the Nome Gold Rush.
