Chatanika Gold Camp


Chatanika F.E. gold camp, est. 1921
The Fairbanks Exploration Company is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Chatanika used to be the center of one of the richest placer gold districts in Alaska.

There's gold, and it's haunting and haunting -
It's luring me on as of old -
Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting
So much as just finding the gold.
It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder;
It's the forests where silence has lease;
It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder;
It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

Robert W. Service (1874-1958)
