Big Delta State Historical Park gives visitors an opportunity to take a walk back in time. The park is comprised of Rika's Roadhouse and the Big Delta State Historic District, both on the National Register of Historic Places. The historic district was an important crossroad for prospectors, travelers, traders, and the military during the early days of the 20th century. Rika's Roadhouse, the centerpiece of the park, served travelers of the historic Valdez-to-Fairbanks Trail from 1913 to 1947.
