Did you know?

Although the Russians came to Alaska in 1741, bringing the traditions of the Russian Orthodox religion to the indigenous peoples of the region, it was in the early 1890s that entrepreneur George W. Palmer set-up a trading post on the Matanuska River, near to present-day Palmer. The town was later named after Palmer, who was born in Erie County, Pennsylvania and arrived in Alaska aged 38 in 1893, following a stint as a logger in Seattle.
