Livengood Stage Company, 1938

Pioneer Alaska Bus Companies

The Alaska Miner (Fairbanks), May 17, 1938

    A hotel has been opened in Livengood by Alma Chatnnet, it was reported in Fairbanks today by Bliss Harper, operator of the Livengood Stage Co. The establishment serves meals, and has facilities for the accommodation of 20 guests. The building formerly was owned by Lee Murray.

    Operating the stage between Fairbanks and Livengood, Mr. Harper makes two trips each week. He departs from the Service Motor Co. at 7 a. m. each Monday and Friday.

    The road to Livengood is in fair condition, although it is still glaciered in places.

    Anna Paul and Bill Thompson came from Livengood to Fairbanks Tuesday with Harper.

    The Livengood Stage Company is now operating out of Lerdahl's Garage, 617 Third Avenue.

    Packages and freight for the stage should be left at Lerdahl's, Bliss Harper, operator, reported. The stage office is at Lavery Airways, 516 Second Avenue.

    Because of glaciering and snow on the trail, today's trip may be the stage's last to Livengood this winter. During the closing days of travel over the road, there has been a great deal of freight from Fairbanks to Livengood and points en route. Much wood is hauled from camps along the Elliott Highway to Fairbanks.
