Local Montessori School Buys Old Railroad Depot
An abandoned downtown Fairbanks landmark will see new life as a private school. Spruce Tree Montessori School has purchased the old Alaska Railroad Depot from the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. The depot located behind the News-Miner building has sat idle since the railroad sold it to the newspaper and relocated to a new Fairbanks station in 2005. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the school plans to transform the languishing property.
