Our home: Eagle River, alaska
View from our church.
History: The Eagle River/Chugiak community began as a farming community separate from Anchorage. As Anchorage has grown, Eagle River has become a large and expanding bedroom community of Anchorage, separated from Anchorage by Ft. Richardson military reservation. It is now a self-sufficient major suburb of Anchorage.
Population: Eagle River, as of 2007 has an estimated population of 35,000, with expectations of continuing growth. Governmentally, it is part of the Municipality of Anchorage, with an estimated population of 359,200. Eagle River has its own main business district and shares some utilities with the Mat-Su Valley, rather than Anchorage.
Chugiak-Eagle River continues to attract visitors and new residents alike because of its pristine beauty and modern conveniences. New subdivisions are in the planning stages that will accommodate those wishing to relocate to this area. However, plenty of open space remains allowing residents and visitors to thrive in this beautiful Alaskan environment.
