Originally built in 1915, this award-winning building has the only corner turret found in Anchorage. It was constructed by an early civic leader, A.J. Wendler. Each year, the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race begins in front of this building; the starting point is marked by a large bronze sled dog. This building was occupied for 18 years by "One People," a co-op that enables indigenous people worldwide to be self-sufficient by providing a sales outlet for their endangered arts and crafts. It is now a coffee shop and art gallery dedicated to displaying works by Alaskan artists. - Christine Keene
