Lindblom Creek in Detail.


flows to Snake River, 8 mi. NW of Nome, Seward Peninsula High.


Reported as "Lindbloom" on a map by S. E. king, dated 1900. Named for Erik C. Lindblom, one of the "three Swedes" who discovered gold in the Nome area in the summer of 1898. Lindblom, a native of Sweden, was 30 years old in 1898, and for several years had been a tailor in the stampede to Kotzebue Sound, but ended up in Council where he met John Brynteson, a Swede, and Jafet Lindeberg, a Norwegian. These three, often called the "three Swedes," sought new territory and prospected along the coast of Norton Sound where they found gold along the Snake River (Rickard, 1909, p. 330-334).
