This iReport is part of an assignment:
Kennicott abandoned and restored grocery store
These are photos of the grocery store in Kennicott, Alaska. I took photo #1 when the grocery store was abandoned. I found a photo on line of the restored grocery store. It brought me back to the time that I took the photo 20 years ago. This is a link to interesting information on the history of Kennicott, Alaska. http://www.nps.gov/wrst/historyculture/kennecott.htm .
There is a link for a 12 minute video that is also interesting. .Watch for the grocery store that I believe is a visitors center for this historical site. See what the front of the store looks like now. My photo# 3 is what it looked like 20 years ago when it was abandoned.
