Knik Hall

Between 1900 and 1914
  • Knik Hall (Jet Lowe)

Knik Hall is a two-story, wood-framed building with a gable roof. The horizontal boards covering the building are flush boards on the front and clapboards on the sides. Across the gable front is a one-story, shed-roofed enclosed porch, wood-framed with board-and-batten siding. Although little is known of its origin, the hall was apparently built some time between 1900 and 1914 and served as a roadhouse, store, and pool hall. It now houses the Knik Museum and the Dog Mushers Hall of Fame.
