ROSLYN


507Once a small coal mining town, Roslyn (More Info) became the famous Cicely, Alaska, when CBS’s “Northern Exposure” began using the historical town’s Pennsylvania Avenue to film its exterior scenes on location. The annual Moose Fest is held each year in July and honors the television show that was filmed for seven years during the 1990’s. The City of Roslyn is listed as a historical district on the National Historic Register of Sites. Be sure to check out the Coal Miners Museum, the Coal Miners Memorial and the ethnic cemetery. The story of Roslyn’s past is told in the collection of ethnic cemeteries, many of which date back to before the turn of the century. Many of the gravesites within the 26 individual cemeteries reflect their counterparts in Europe, home of so many who immigrated to the United States.
