Saving History

Save our Ship

Are you searching for what you can do with your time or your funds? We, the members of The SS Nenana, are reaching out to the community (you, the residents of Fairbanks or Alaska) to help us restore the SS Nenana.

We need your ideas, your time and your input that could help us on our mission. Please consider becoming a member and help us save this ship which is the last of her kind. It is listed on the historical register and Endangered Listing of Historical Items.

The SS Nenana helped build our city and Alaska. She served the villages from Nenana to Marshall on the coast. Now it needs us to serve her by whatever way you can. Sign up to volunteer time at the SS Nenana Cabin at Pioneer Park from Memorial Day through Labor Day. If that doesn’t fit your schedule and you have extra funds to donate to our restoration fund great! Maybe you know someone that could join you and share time with you in spreading the word of our goal? Possibly you are proficient at building and keeping UpToDate a website? Open to your ideas.

If you have any questions or are interested in our mission, please call us:
