Delta Junction
The 1,365-mile Alaska Highway ends at Delta Junction, 200 miles past
the Alaska border (Historic Milepost 1422). The town came into being as
a construction camp for the building of the Alaska Highway in 1942 and the Fort Greely army post in the early 50s. It’s also home to the Pogo Gold Mine which celebrated twelve years of gold production. The deposit has yielded more than 3 million ounces of gold since 2006 employing more than 300
full-time, year-round employees.
The City of Delta Junction is located in the fertile Tanana River Valley and surrounded by the White Mountains to the north, the Granite Mountains to the southeast, and the Alaska Range to the southwest the Delta River to the west.
Be sure to visit the Delta Junction Visitor Center which sits at the intersection and welcomes visitors with a friendly cup of coffee and a certificate proclaiming they have completed North America’s ultimate

Delta is an agricultural community, and visitors can taste the local produce at Highway’s End Farmer’s Market across from the visitor’s center at the Triangle or during the Deltana Fair. Held in August, the fair includes livestock, garden and craft exhibits along with the usual fair staples of tractor pulls, food vendors and carnival rides. For a historical view of farming, the Alaska Homestead & Historical Museum, east of Delta Junction on the Alaska Highway, is the site of an early homestead farm and a large collection of early farming equipment.
