    Mary and Mike




    Hello,

    We're Mike and Mary Dougherty and we created Anchorage Memories. Mary was born in the old Providence Hospital and raised in Anchorage.


    You can Meet Mary right here.


    Mike's family first came to Anchor town in the 1950's when Mike was only 3 years old. (ok, you do the math and you'll find out Mike's age).


    You can Meet Mike right here.



    Mary and I grew up, went to school, met each other, got married and had our children in Anchorage.


    So for us, like many of you, Alaska is a magical place.


    And like a visit to the Anchorage Museum, a stroll through town brings back a flood of incredible memories.


    Mary is part Alaskan Indian and her family owns Point Possession, a commercial fishing site that sits right across Cook Inlet from Anchorage.


    Her family still fished there every summer and some family members still carry on the tradition.


    Mike's father was a heavy equipment operator and cleared much of the land in and around Anchorage. 


    That land included the sites for A&W RootBeer near Mountain View, East Anchorage High School and West Chester Lagoon, just to name a few.


    Mary and her family grew up in and around the downtown area , while Mike's family lived in Anchorage, Wasilla, and in Cordova on Prince William Sound where Mike was a commercial fisherman when he was just 16.


    Together, Mike and Mary have shared a lifetime of incredible Alaska memories.
