This photo, taken around the turn of the 20th century, shows the Douglas Native village behind railroad tracks that led to Treadwell. A massive fire struck Douglas on Oct. 10, 1926, burning the entire eastern part of town, including the Native village and most of adjoining Treadwell. The village was located at present-day Savikko Park.
