Significance: The Sullivan Roadhouse was one of the log rest stops along the dog sled and horse sledge trail which connected the port of Valdez with the interior of Alaska at Fairbanks. The simple structure represents the type of essential shelter for winter travelers. John Sullivan and his wife were typical sourdough roadhouse operators found in Alaska from the turn of the century to the 1930s. The structure and its setting reflect the isolation of the Alaska frontier.
