In 1960, they turned the bottom half of the house into an art gallery, Eskimo artifacts repository, and cultural center. With local art, poetry readings, lively music, and a warm bed and dinner always on hand for visitors, the Alaska House quickly became a center of cultural activity and a well-known Fairbanks landmark.

Today the gallery has maintained the buildingsoriginal oak floors, high ceilings, and leaded windows, as well as the hand hewn timbers overhead and the river rock fireplace.
