KHM recently hosted a virtual lecture on May 31st, titled “Kodiak’s Historic Bars”. In the lecture, Douglas Vandegraft, author of A Guide to the Notorious Bars of Alaska, presented his research into the history of bars in Kodiak. This presentation is part of the Kodiak History Museum’s temporary exhibit, Kodiak’s Historic Bars – 1899 to Today – co-curated with Douglas Vandegraft, Toby Sullivan, and Jim Ramaglia – exploring how bars have been part of Kodiak’s social glue for over 100 years. Watch the recorded lecture to find out more information!

This project is supported by a Grant-in-Aid from the Alaska State Museum.
