Girdwood Sign smallDiscover Girdwood, Alaska

Girdwood has a rich history steeped in gold fever. Originally called “Glacier City”, Girdwood was founded as a supply camp for placer gold miners. It was renamed for Colonel James Girdwood, an entrepreneur and linen merchant who staked the first four gold claims along Crow Creek in 1886.

Crow Creek Mine was one of the largest producing hydraulic placer gold mines in Southcentral Alaska. During its peak production, historians estimate that 700 ounces of gold were extracted per month. Mining operations came to a standstill during World War II, and local lore claims that more gold remains in the creek than was mined.

Today, Girdwood is a vibrant community and part of the Municipality of Anchorage. Those who call Girdwood home are made up of a diverse population of outdoor enthusiasts, local businesses, services and Anchorage commuters. Complete with a mercantile, post office, many bed & breakfast locations, restaurants & bars, and shops, Girdwood offers natural beauty, convenience and a rich heritage for residents and visitors alike. Visit the Girdwood Chamber website for more information.
