Seventy-five years ago, East Anchorage was mostly spruce forest. Anchorage pioneer homesteader Arnold L. Muldoon backpacked building materials along a muddy trail that became Muldoon Road. He put up a log cabin in the winter of 1940-1941 and tried his hand at farming. Read the story of how Muldoon Road got its name!
