It is the home of three barge companies which transport goods to villages along the Tanana and Yukon Rivers. It is famous for the Nenana Ice Classic, a guessing contest, started in 1917, on the break-up of the ice on the Tanana River in the Spring with a winning pot of close to $300,000 in recent years, and for being the start of the diphtheria serum run of 1925.
