    1. I’m an Alaska resident and I thought you should know that absolutely no children or anyone else died in the Jesse Lee Home for Children during the 1964 earthquake. Not sure where you got that info but it is completely false.

      • Shut the front door Peg!! You’re just trying to keep keeping away. I’ve walked passed it many times and I’ve heard voices of children playing and laughing and crying and singing songs that belong to Drake’s newest album, Scorpion. Again, shut the front door peg.

    2. This is a true statement the children that are reported to have died, were the children that died at at the first location of the children’s home and as far as I knew you we not even allow by the city of Seward to be on location I wonder if they got permission to be there but hay it’s cool to see
