Anchorage, Alaska: Dr. King Memorial

It apparently took a while for the citizens of Anchorage to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The first plan was to rename a street in his memory, but that was voted down in an election. Plan B was a memorial area in the park. That one made it, on the Park Strip on I St. between 9th and 10th.

The display is more elaborate than what is shown here, as there are elements behind what is pictured. For a complete look, take a visual tour at this site.

Roadside America describes this as the northernmost monument to Dr. King in the United States. That sounds about right.
