Welcome to the Indian Valley Mine & Gifts. We are located at mile 104 (km 167.4 from Seward) on the Seward Highway just a short 20 minutes drive south of Anchorage, Alaska. Indian Valley Mine & Gifts is family owned and operated by Roger and Arlene Cowles. We are open every day 9am to 6pm from May 15th to September 15th. The main cabin, which contains the gift shop, and the assay building at Indian Valley Mine are some of the oldest structures built on the Turnagain Arm, and are listed as a National Historic Site.

     Indian Valley Mine offers visitors the opportunity to learn gold panning, browse through an assay building with a small museum, visit our gift shop, or just to sit back on one of our benches or picnic tables and take in the panoramic view of the Turnagain Arm.

Admission is only $1.00 per person.

Indian Valley Mine makes a great afternoon or early evening trip for families visiting Alaska, and of course for those Alaskan sourdoughs that already live here, and are looking for an inexpensive close place to take the kids.
