In retrospect, Chugiak-Eagle River residents have much to be thankful for. Today, we live as modern a lifestyle as anyone else. That was not always the case. In Chugiak’s early days there were no paved roads, homes with attached garages, no television, no internet, no telephones—not even electricity before 1951. It was that year that the community had its first public school, a building designed to house 50 students in grades 1-8. Settlers who chose the name said to mean “place of many places” were too busy clearing land and building homes to think of entertainment.
