NOME: A SPECIAL KIND OF HOME
To outsiders, Nome might seem like a remote, faraway destination. To us, it’s a beloved home. At Trinity Sails and Repair, we are proud to serve this historic area. Nome has not only fantastic people, but also a rich, interesting and vibrant history.
There are three different theories for how Nome got its name, so no one really knows the origin of the label for certain. In the late 1890’s, a group of locals changed the name to “Anvil City.” The U.S. Post Office later rejected the change and the city was forced to maintain its original moniker. When gold was discovered around 1898, Nome became a boom town, with a population swelling to roughly 10,000 people.
During World War II, the city was an important stopping location for the ferry system of planes that would fly to the Soviet Union. The city was the last stop for planes that were being shipped on water before they took to the skies from the nearby airstrip, which is still in use to this day.
