Farm Loop Road - Questions?

I have lots of little notes of places to see and things to do when we are in Alaska. Here's what is written on one of my notes: "Farm Loop Road, recommended by National Geographic, must see". That's all my note says!

I'm now attempting to figure out where Farm Loop Road is and what I should expect to see or do on this road. A Google map search reveals a town called "Farm Loop", which has a "Farm Loop Road". Can anyone provide additional insight into Farm Loop?

There's a Farm Loop Road north of Palmer:

I don't know that I'd call it scenic... But the Musk Oxen farm is near there...

I think there's a Farm Loop in Fairbanks too...

No, actually it's called Farmer's Loop. http://goo.gl/maps/4Ci33

Farm Loop in Palmer has some nice views of The Butte and as mentioned is near the Musk Ox Farm. Lots of history in the area. You may want to check out the history before you go or it won't be as meaningful. Search on The Matanuska Colony, Depression era & Farming and you should find some information.

We drove this road while in the Palmer area just because we were interested in the diversity of scenery in Alaska. Now, I have some more to research on the history which will be fun even though the trip is over.

I am on my phone or I would post some links. There is a museum and a depression era cabin you can visit in Palmer.
