Open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at 1806 Alameda St. 224-2500.

The contests and crowds of the summer subside to the colors of fall and the challenges of readying for Seward’s other season. Seward was founded in this part of the year and almost immediately pioneering merchants began setting up shop creating Seward’s downtown business district. Within a few years from 1903, buildings sprang up and Seward’s commerce became central to the prosperity of the Alaska Territory. And so it remained for decades as trade, mining, forestry and fisheries underwrote the area’s expansion and statehood.

Seward is once again reaching for another pinnacle of prosperity and the robust spread of business activity throughout the community is a testament to the opportunities being realized every week. With a little imagination and a lot of elbow grease, there are plenty of new success stories to be written here. Seward has a long history of being open for business. And, as shopkeepers bustle busily during the sunset of relative warmth, there’s every reason to be thankful that they’re not operating from tents.
