Red Johns Cabin

“Red” John Cuculich was a Yugoslavian immigrant who got his nickname due to the color of his hair.  He was best friends with neighbor “Black” John Zulich. Both were mining partners. John lived in Talkeetna until his sudden death of an apparent heart attack along the trail to his gold mine.  He was buried where he died. 

His home stayed empty for years.  It is now an Air BnB.
