The Tiny Town In Alaska With A Terribly Creepy Past
Manley Hot Springs is a town of less than 100 that lies at the end of the Elliott Highway, along the Tanana River. It is most famous for the gorgeous hot springs that bubble up from the ground into spacious tubs in a greenhouse. But, the other reason the name rings out is the terrible murder of many of the residents in a killing spree in the 1980s. This horrible day lives on in the minds of those who were around at the time and those who choose to live there now.
