Harding Street

-A A +A

Another peculiar neighborhood is that around Harding Street, where bungalows are tightly packed. Streets here are named Warren, G, and Harding, in honor of that president's visit to Ketchikan in 1923. Harding dissolves into Bayview Street, which is completely planked and built on a trestle. Several of the buildings have side-gable roofs with bracketed purlins in the gables.
