Neighborhood 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, Spenard's bars and gambling institutions made it a well known “red light district." Today, Spenard is in the midst of a neighborhood revitalization driven by new housing, new small businesses, and the local arts community.
