6 Reviews

At the height of the gold rush, Ketchikan’s red-light area on Creek Street had around 30 bordellos. Dolly’s House Museum tells the story of those rough and ready pioneering days.

Dolly Arthur was one of Ketchikan’s better known madams, operating from the 1930s until prostitution was outlawed in Ketchikan in the 1950s. Today her parlor and boudoir are preserved as a museum filled with memorabilia, commemorating the roaring days of the early 20th century.

You can visit Dolly’s floral-wallpapered bedroom, with its brass bedstead, and see the sofas and armchairs where clients waited in the wings.

Tours outline Dolly’s story, then you are free to tour her home on your own. Highlights include the hidden liquor cabinet and the shower curtain made from condoms that Dolly ran up on her sewing machine.
