Welcome to Juneau, Alaska
Juneau was established as Alaska's capital in 1906. To date Juneau has over 31k residents.
In 1927 Alaska was in need of an official flag, a contest for students was held and a 7th grader won with his 8 golden star big dipper, the same big dipper we see here in Alaska very well year round.
Many of you heard that Alaska was purchased in 1867, many have not heard how it was lost in a high stakes card game.
We look forward to updating you when you come to visit our city.
