How to get there


CARVED ON THE CHURCH DOOR

To all who are joyful and thankful * to all who mourn and need comfort,
To all who are weary and need rest * to all who are friendless and wish friendship,
To all who pray and to all who do n ot, but ought * to all who sin and need a Saviour,
and to whoever will *** this church opens wide the door and
in the name of Christ the Lord says -

WELCOME


Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord's resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin by your life-giving Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

THE GEORGE C. THOMAS
MEMORIAL LIBRARY
Originally built with money from George C. Thomas, the Treasurer of the Domestic and Foreign Missionay Society of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America (The original name of the Episcopal Church). He died before it was completed so at the dedication of the "reading room" it was named in memory of him. At one time, it also served as the Public Health Nursing Station, the site of the meeting of the Tanana Chiefs with Judge Wickersham regarding land, and a City and Borough Library. In recent times, it has served also as a business site for a realty company and a credit union and is currently being used as a mining museum.
