400 Block of Third Avenue

-A A +A

Known as Millionaire's Row, these houses have a modest bearing, compared to the houses in the Lower 48, that belies their nickname. Nonetheless, these were the houses—all built in 1905—for the prominent citizens in town. For example, the house at 413 was built for George Winter, a treasurer of the Alaska Central Railroad; number 417, for the head of the commissary of the railroad, Murray B. Holland; and number 429 for Eugene Hale, brother of an owner of the Bank of Seward. The houses are one-story cottages with porches and bay windows.
