Northern Exposure TV Town
Roslyn is where the exteriors were filmed for the quirky 1990s TV series Northern Exposure, set in fictional Cicely, Alaska. The concurrent use of nearby towns North Bend and Snoqualmie by the even-more-quirky series Twin Peaks created a brief Golden Age of television weirdness for municipalities in Washington State (the series ran from 1990-95). Roslyn still offers a few places that Northern Exposure fans would recognize, such as the Roslyn's Cafe camel mural, Ruth-Anne's store, the KBHR radio station, and the weather-beaten vistas of Main Street from the show's opening credits.
Hardcore fans will notice that the cafe mural has been restored to its original "Roslyn Cafe" after its modification, left for a time during the series' run to make it "Roslyn's Cafe."
