History Of Fairbanks

In August 1901, captain Barnette founded Fairbanks. Barnette's brother-in-law, James W. Hill, provided the town with electricity, drinking water, and steam heat, and the town expanded quickly. Gold production increased from $40,000 in 1903 to $6 million in 1905, and to $9.5 million in 1909. Barnette opened the town's first bank on September 9, 1904. In 1911, the slogan "Fairbanks, Alaska's Golden Heart" was created. The slogan remains the city's motto also today. In July 1967, Fairbanks received 3.34 inches (8.5 cm) of rain. It is one of the worst disaster in Fairbanks history. The rain had a massive effect on Fairbanks. Downtown Fairbanks was innundated by floodwaters from the Chena River and four people were killed, and the damage ran into the hundreds of millions of dollars.
