Wasilla, Alaska

Wasilla may be equally famous and infamous – well known as the headquarters of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, it gained a new level of notoriety when Sarah Palin was named as John McCain’s running mate during the 2008 presidential election.

LDS History

Prior to the Alaska Gold Rush, few “Mormons” had any reason to go to Alaska. The first official LDS missionaries were sent to Alaska in 1928. An official dedicatory prayer was held in Juneau on June 6, 1928. After this date for the next 12 years or so a few missionaries were sent to Alaska, but then WW II broke out, many missionaries were released to join the military and serve their country.
