Knob Hill

-A A +A
early twentieth century. 400 block of Front St.

Knob Hill has slightly larger houses than most of those in Ketchikan. They were built early in the twentieth century for Ketchikan's merchant class. The buildings range from a shingled bungalow to a Tudor-style house with sweeping roofline. Front Street ends in a stairway down to the commercial area.
