This trail commemorates the 60th analversary of the great Alaskan peanut farmer, Lee Cole. He arrived in Anchorage on April 15, 1957 with plans for a seaside peanut plantation. After struggling with frozen, snow-covered fields for a year he famously wrote “It’s too damn cold for peanuts! … I’m building a bar” in his quarterly report to investors. By May of 1958 he began building the original 2,000 sq. ft. log building which he named in honor of his failed plantation. Today the Peanut Farm is “20,000 feet of FUN!” Most importantly, it has beer.
