2. Barnette's Landing Beautification Project. With no roads and sparse trails, the rivers were the highways in Alaska in the early 20th Century. Historically, the area along the Chena River has been a gathering place for people. It's likely that ages ago hunters and gatherers came to barter, to share ideas and to learn from one another.
