Our New Book is Here!

"This book is an invaluable introduction to the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, one of the little-known treasures of Alaska, where an essential slice of 20th Century history is brought to life..." -Dermot Cole, author and Fairbanks Daily News-Miner columnist


Our new book, Alaska's Fountainhead Collection: Vintage Treads and Threads, has arrived from the printer. This glossy, 120-page softcover book takes you inside the Fountainhead Museum to explore 42 of our finest automobiles, such as the only Hay Motor Vehicle ever made and the last-surviving Argonne. Some of the other marques represented include Compound, Hertel, Daniels, Franklin, Cartercar, Owen Magnetic, Heine-Velox, Stutz, Cadillac, Wills Sainte Claire, Packard and Moline-Knight.



The book also features chapters on Alaska's automotive heritage and our historic clothing collection:


There are well over 200 color photographs inside, plus archival photos from Alaska's early motoring days. This high-quality book is a great bargain at only $19.95. You can purchase copies at the museum (open Sundays) or at Wedgewood Resort's front desk (24/7). If outside of Fairbanks, you can phone in your order to 907-450-2100. Priority postage/handling (domestic) is $7.50 for up to two books.

"Fairbanks really isn't a very big town, and to be honest, I wasn't expecting much from the museum, but I could not have been more wrong. The place absolutely blew me away." 
- Dennis Gage, host of "My Classic Car with Dennis Gage"
