Have you ever visited the Jesse Lee Home in Alaska? What did you think? Did you encounter anything spooky? Let us know in the comments below!
Yes! As Alaska had a big boom during the Gold Rush era, there were many towns that seemingly sprung up overnight. These towns were abandoned when the areas became “mined out” and no more gold could be found. You’ll find entire villages abandoned. There are also many buildings and bunkers that were built during World War II that subsequently were abandoned after the war ended.
Can you visit abandoned buildings in Alaska?
Perhaps, but many of the larger abandoned buildings in the state, like the Jesse Lee Home for Children in Seward, were abandoned due to structural damage during the Good Friday Earthquake. The same can be said for the massive Bucker Building in Whittier, which is large enough to fit the entire town! This building, built during World War II by the U.S. Military, was abandoned after significant damage during the 1964 earthquake. It is much safer to admire many of these wonderful place from the outside. You may even come across mining equipment, and abandoned ghost towns, on some of your hikes in the backcountry. If you do choose to explore, remember to practice safety! Much of the metal is most likely rusty, and the buildings may be close to falling down.
