Douglas has a new Treadwell Mine Historic Park.
The City and Borough Assembly Monday night named the historic district within Savviko Park after the old mine. The district begins at the southern end of Sandy Beach and ends just north of the 1917 Treadwell Mine cave-in site.
The Savviko Park master plan has a recreation zone, including the ball fields, as well as Sandy Beach and the Treadwell Historic District. The CBJ Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee previously recommended the district become a historic park.
The Treadwell Historic Preservation and Restoration Society plans to put up interpretive historical signs in the area, and protect the Treadwell stamp mill and other town-site structures.
