  • PETES Creek near BERTHA Creek (Turnagain) Question

    Does anyone know any history about Pete's Creek...??? Not about gold production, but about the name of the creek (Pete Creek). There was a small cabin there till they enlarged the Seward Hwy. from one and a half lanes wide.

        Well I know who Bertha Creek is named after. Her uncle was Peter Kalifornsky, so maybe ........
