DescriptionRoslyn, founded in 1886, at one time was connected to some of the most extensive coal fields on the West Coast. Although all of the mines had closed by the mid-1960s, a few vestiges of the town's 1920s heyday—when the population peaked at 4,000—remain. This picturesque setting was put to effective use on the TV series “Northern Exposure,” with Roslyn standing in for fictitious Cicely, Alaska. The Roslyn Cemeteries, half a mile west of town on Memorial Street, is a 15-acre site with 25 plots that reflect ethnic diversity.
