Other user descriptions
Nome is a city located in Nome Census Area south of the Seward Peninsula in the Bering Sea in Alaska, USA. According to 2005 census estimates, the city population was 3,590 inhabitants. Nome was built in 1901 and was once the largest city in Alaska. The city claims to be the home of the washboard and the world's largest gold, although it is disputed by the city of Quesnel, British Columbia, Canada. In the winter of 1925, the area of the city suffered because of an epidemic of diphtheria. The weather prevented the aircraft could bring aid, so a group of sled dogs was organized to travel to Nenana and return with medicines. To commemorate this historic event, each year organizes a dogsled race. The driver of the sleigh in the last period was Gunnar Kaasen, and sled dog was Balto captain. A statue of Balto is located near the zoo in Central Park in New York City. Leonhard Seppala ran the penultimate and longest leg of the course, and his dog, Togo, is regarded as the unsung hero of the trail to Nome. another of his dogs, Fritz, is preserved on display at the Memorial Museum Carrie M. McLain in Nome.
