Sing Lee Alley

Southeast Alaska

If it's historic in Petersburg, you'll find it in Sing Lee Alley, an ensemble of geriatric wooden buildings dating from the 1910s. Much of the street is built on pilings over Hammer Slough, including the Sons of Norway Hall, a large white building with colorful rosemaling built in 1912 and the center for Petersburg’s Norwegian culture. Come on down and play bingo at 7pm on Friday.
