Old Town Valdez Recreated in Miniature

Published On: Mar 27 2014 06:00:00 PM AKDT

When the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake and the resulting tsunamis hit Valdez the town was so decimated it was forced to uproot and move a few miles up the coast. If you go the old town site today there is not much left. The town exists though, in a much smaller form, in the Valdez Museum.
