RBHS Sundays -- Volunteers open the Seward Museum every Sunday through Sept. 15 from 1 - 5 pm with the following special activities: "Iditarod Trail" movie at 2 pm; local author Dan Walker  presents a talk at 2:30 pm about Alaska homesteading and his memoir "Letters from Happy Valley"; and "Waves Over Seward" movie about the 1964 earthquake at 3 pm.

Windows of History

Iditarod Trail Souvenir Plates are featured in the atrium's window display area in the Seward Community Library Museum. These commemorative plates were issued annually during the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race to Nome. This collection belongs to the Seward Iditarod Trail Blazers.

Temporary Exhibit

"History of the Seward Dairy" occupies the temporary exhibit corner in the Seward Museum. Check out the photos, newspaper articles and artifacts that detail the history of this longtime area business. You'll learn that the Leirer family did not start the dairy enterprise, although they did operate it for many years until its closure in the 1950s.
