The sight of smoke from the steamer's engines caught the attention of gold prospectors working in the hills to the north, most notably an Italian immigrant named Felice Pedroni (better known as Felix Pedro) and his partner Tom Gilmore.
Fairbanks is located in the central Tanana Valley, straddling the Chena River near its confluence with the Tanana River.The now-abandoned Polaris Building, the tallest building in Fairbanks since its completion in 1952, is in the background. The steamboat on which Barnette was a passenger, the Lavelle Young, ran aground while attempting to negotiate shallow water.Barnette, along with his party and supplies, were deposited along the banks of the Chena River 7 miles (11 km) upstream from its confluence with the Tanana River.The construction of Ladd Army Airfield starting in 1939, part of a larger effort by the federal government during the New Deal and World War II to install major infrastructure in the territory for the first time, fostered an economic and population boom in Fairbanks which extended beyond the end of the war. Fairbanks suffered from numerous floods in its first six decades, whether from ice jams during spring breakup or due to heavy rainfall.The Haines - Fairbanks 626 mile long 8" petroleum products pipeline was constructed during the period 1953-55. The first bridge crossing the Chena River, a wooden structure built in 1904 to extend Turner Street northward to connect with the wagon roads leading to the gold mining camps, washed out with regularity before a permanent bridge was constructed at Cushman Street in 1917 by the Alaska Road Commission.Farmers Loop Road and Badger Road, loop roads north and east (respectively) of Fairbanks, were also home to major farming activity.
Badger Road is named for Harry Markley Badger, an early resident of Fairbanks who later established a farm along the road and became known as "the Strawberry King".
On September 13, 1992, 8 inches (20 cm) of snow fell in the city, bending trees still laden with fall leaves.
That September was also one of the snowiest on record, as 24 in (61 cm) fell, compared to a median The average first and last hard freeze are September 9 and May 15, respectively, allowing a growing season of 116 days, although freezes have occurred in June, July, and August and the last light frost is often in early June and the first light fall frost is often in late August or early September.
South of the river is the Tanana Flats, an area of marsh and bog that stretches for more than 100 miles (160 km) until it rises into the Alaska Range, which is visible from Fairbanks on clear days.) of it (2.48%) is water. It is roughly on the same parallel as northern Swedish city of Skellefteå and Finnish city of Oulu.
The city is extremely far north, being located close to 16 parallels north of the Pacific border between the U. Apart from those cities, this parallel is sparsely populated due to its cold climate.
Barnette set up his trading post at the site, still intending to eventually make it to Tanacross.
