Community Spotlight: Spenard
Historically a separate city from Anchorage, Spenard began as a lumber camp during the construction of the Alaska Railroad. During the oil boom of the early 1980s, when local enterprises included bars and gambling institutions, Spenard gained a reputation as one of the “red light districts” in the region.
