Nome can be described as a city situated on southern coast of Seward Peninsula on Bering Sea’s Norton Sound. It’s, in fact, included in ‘Nome Census Area’ of Alaska, US.
Nome claims of being home to the biggest gold pan of the world; even though it’s being disputed by Quesnel, British Columbia, Canada.
In 1925’s winter, an epidemic of diphtheria raged amongst Eskimos within Nome area.
July proves to be the hottest month; with temperature of around 86 degree F; whereas January the coolest one; with 43 degree F.
As per census conducted in the year 2000, population of Nome was 3505. Its density was reported to be 108 per sq. Km.
The ‘origin’ of the name ‘Noma’ has still been under debate. In the month of February in the year 1899, certain local miners as well as merchants suggested for changing name to ‘Anvil City’; owing to confusion with ‘Cape Nome’, at the distance of 12 miles on the southern side. It was, however, refused by United States Post Office located in Nome.

Overall Guide : Nome's colorful Gold Rush history is set within the framework of 10,000 years of Inupiaq Eskimo history. A history of survival living a subsistence lifestyle that many live to this day underscores the vibrancy of the Eskimo culture. The culture... more that today manifests itself in the world's finest ivory carving, vibrant drum/vocal music and some of the best Eskimo dancing in Alaska. The Inupiaq values of yesterday live in the people today.
