Soldotna changes Kleeb to Whistle Hill Loop

The Soldotna City Council voted to rename Kleeb Loop to Whistle Hill Loop.

Mary Krull is the owner of Brew@602, a train-car-turned-coffee-shop, which sits on top of the hill along the former Kleeb Loop in Soldotna. The hill, which is a commercial complex, is also now home to a hydroponic farm, Fresh 365, and the future Addie Camp Train Car Eatery and Wine Bar.

Krull said she is thrilled to death with the council’s decision to approve the name change.

“It was really a safety issue,” Krull said. “People were confused how to get to the hill when they saw our new sign put up.”

Krull said she and the city researched the history of the Kleeb name but found no history on it.
