Midway Past

At one time, Midway supported as many as 5,000 people. Because many of the structures from that time are still standing and unused, I often feel like I live in a ghost town. Here are some images.

Hole #9

The bowling alley is still open (only half of the lanes are functioning), but only for an hour on Sundays.

The bar is still frequented and is the site of parties, Chugach Band performances, ping pong and pool.

The mall.

The gym. Even has a working sauna!

Site of the old Cannon School - now a field of albatross chicks.

One of the oldest structures on Midway - built in 1903

This is where employees of the Pacific Cable Company resided. Midway was the site of the final connection of the trans-Pacific telegraph cable.

Ammunitions bunker

A forest is growing on the roof!
