History

Name of a suburb of Anchorage obtained in 1961 by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS); the village was incorporated in 1958 with a population of 8 (Rand McNally, 1961, p. 57) so that the residents could buy $1.98 worth of surplus road equipment. The population had dwindled to one resident by 1973. (Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, 4/24/73, p2)
