Alaska Heritage House Bed and Breakfast Information


The Alaska Heritage House is conveniently located in a residential area downtown Fairbanks. Close, to local shops, restaurants and museums, it's a short beautiful walk alongside the Chena River. Here at the Alaska Heritage House our aim is to take our guests back in time to the Gold Rush Fever era in Fairbanks. The house is beautifully preserved with many original furniture pieces dating back to the late 1800's. From the antique bed frames, to the European claw-foot porcelain tubs, all 8 bedrooms sport a style true to its era.

A bit of history: Some say Lucille McCarthy was a young ingénue that accompanied her parents to Fairbanks for the purpose of inspecting their territorial business interests; still others claim she was most likely a “good time girl” from Dawson that arrived during the heat of Fairbanks’ gold fever. Although Lucille’s reason for coming to Fairbanks is unclear, it is clear she and Arthur Williams, a very prosperous and civic minded Fairbanks restaurateur had fallen madly in love. The result of this love match was the two year planning and construction of the largest and most elegant house in the Alaska Territory. The house featured such modern marvels and territorial firsts as tongue and grove oak flooring, central heat from a coal burning furnace, a coal fueled kitchen stove, a central vacuum system, an indoor bathroom with hot and cold running water, a heated greenhouse, a masonry fireplace, insulated walls, ten foot ceilings, and massive furniture made from exotic woods by some of America’s best craftsmen.
