We had a great time today visiting the tiny town of Roslyn, WA. It is also known as Cicily, Alaska. This little town was made famous when the TV show Northern Exposure first aired in 1990, it was a big hit and put the town of Roslyn on the map. We did not get to see as much as we would have liked. The town was covered with snow causing a lot of store closing, including the museum. We enjoyed a walking tour of the area. We even shook hands with the mayor. She happened to be in the visitors center where we went for the walking tour material. :-)
I had the best hamburger I have ever tasted at the famous Brick Tavern. Built in 1899, it's the oldest continually operating saloon in the state. Local clay was used to make the bricks and the running water spittoon is the only working one in the area.
KBHR Radio is located in the Northwest Improvement Company Store on Pennsylvania Avenue. The Voice of the Last Frontier was where Chris Stevens (John Corbett) was a DJ. The intact storefront set is visible from the street. Cicely's Gift Shop still has a sign reading Dr. Joel Fleischman (Rob Morrow) on its window. :-) We enjoyed our visit much and hope you enjoy taking the tour with us.
