A bicyclist takes a break near the historic Palmer Train Depot in downtown Palmer on the Glenn Highway.

Palmer was established about 1916 as a railway station on the Matanuska branch of the Alaska Railroad. Before that, the area had long been used by Athabascan Indians and, starting in 1890, the site of a trading post run by George Palmer.
