An Old Miner in Hope, Our friend!

History

The first recorded discovery of gold on Resurrection Creek was in 1888. It is possible that the Russians mined around here before that. By the turn of the Century, thousands of people were living in the Hope Mining District. It was a thriving mining community before the more famous gold rushes in the Klondike and Nome drew the people away. The final blow was the Alaskan Rail Road picking Anchorage for its main supply base. Mining continued in the Hope district until all gold mining was shut down for WWII. The Good Friday Earthquake in 1964 destroyed much of the old Hope leaving it the quaint little town that it is today.
