'''Wasilla''', [[Alaska]] was originally settled by the Dena'ina Athabascan Indians and is named after Chief Wasilla, a local Athabascan chief. The township itself was established in 1917, when the Alaska Railroad was built to create more access to the interior. It served as a gateway to the Willow Creek mining district, a mining area that produced roughly 18 million dollars worth of gold between 1907 and the 1950's. The [[Alaska Pipeline]] brought in more residents in the 1970's and 80's, and Wasilla became one of the fastest growing cities for its size in the United States. Today, Wasilla is the commercial hub for the Matanuska-Susitna Borough and has a population of just over 7,000, and the hometown of its most famous resident, [[Sarah Palin]].
