The Valdez-to-Fairbanks trail brought travelers to the banks of the Tanana River where they crossed by ferry. John Hajdu- kovich a Yugoslavian entrepreneur bought the land along with a fur trading post in 1909 making the Roadhouse over 100 years old.The two-story roadhouse built of logs became a year-round oasis for hunters trappers prospectors and travelers as well as local Athabascans and homesteaders. However John had many other interests including the responsibility of U.S. Game Commissioner. Sitting still and running a roadhouse did not appeal to him so he simply asked guests to make themselves at home and leave some money on the table. He ran it in this way until 1918 when finally a dependable hard-working Swede named Rika Wallen was hired to take over.
