Support makes for successful summer in Old Town Kenai

The Historic Cabin Park in Old Town Kenai is now closed for the winter after a very successful summer. Thanks to many generous sponsors we were able to hire Michael Skinner as our summer cabin docent. Michael shared our Kenai history with approximately 700 visitors from all over the United States as well as many countries from all over the world. We want to thank Hillcorp Alaska, Tesoro Alaska, National Oil Well, Baker Hughes, Pollard Wireline, Arby’s, Pioneers of Alaska, The Kenai Historical Society, Kenai City Mayor Pat Porter, Kenai City Manager Rick Koch, Virginia Poor, Matt and Nicole Streiff, and Joe and June Harris for making this possible and for their help in preserving and sharing our history. Thanks also to our generous community members we are always adding new artifacts and treasures to the cabins. We continue to look for items such as a gasoline washing machine, Blazo boxes and cans, and a stand up mannequin. If you have any of these, or other old artifacts and would like to donate them to help preserve history, please call June Harris at 283-1946. And please add us to your summer time plans in 2014.
