Today, this historic street, which is actually a stilt-mounted boardwalk, offers visitors a unique and interesting look into the tawdry past of a much wilder, Prohibition-era Alaska.
The history of this small Alaskan town is rooted in fishing, bootlegging, and prostitutes; three economies whose fortunes were closely tied. During the days of Prohibition, bootleggers would wait until high tide and navigate their rowboats upstream to deliver to the brothels and backroom saloons of Creek Street.
Under a cloak of darkness, they would sneak Canadian Whisky through trapdoors in the boardwalk into the waiting arms of the ladies of the evening.
The large gable-roofed building at 5 Creek Street is the most famous of the Creek Street brothels. Named for the large star in the center of its wooden dance floor, The Star is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. But today the goings on, of what is now a fascinating museum, are much more family friendly.
The red light district of Creek Street is just one of the many attractions in Ketchikan.
