Overview

Built in 1915, this was the first multi-story building built, and filled with early commerce. Providing one of the earliest stores, Kimball's stocked the items necessary for the flood of Tent City residents who were moving into their own, more permanent homes. Della Kimball, daughter of the pioneer, was 12 years old when her father opened the store and is one of the pioneers who rests in the Anchorage Memorial Cemetery. There is no admission.
