This Is What Alaska Looked Like 100 Years Ago… It May Surprise You
Alright ladies and gents, it’s Thursday night and it’s time for some throwbacks. Have you ever wondered what Alaska looked like, say, 100 years ago? Well I have. Alaska, just like anywhere else, must have been so different at the start of the twentieth-century.
Yet, we all know Alaska is a special state, a little different from all the rest, so with that in mind I was even more intrigued by the thought of what it looked like back in the day. If you happen to be just as curious as I am, than you’ll enjoy all these old photos of places we still know and love today!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Do you recognized any of these places? Are you surprised by what has changed or stayed the same?
Casea Peterson grew up archery hunting, fishing, and camping throughout the Pacific Northwest. Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
