Cabin #6 - A Red History

Cabin #6 was originally a Prostitutes Crib that was located on 4th Avenue. Prostitution was tolerated in Fairbanks as long as two conditions were met: a tax was paid, and the activity was “kept from the view of decent townspeople.” A high-board fence was constructed to keep the houses of ill-repute from view. The fence was referred to as “the Line” or “the Row.” The girls did their shopping at night or had their goods delivered to them, also to keep them from view. Urban renewal in the 1950’s destroyed the Line.
