Clay Street Cemetery

Between 1903 and 1978, more than 2,000 people were buried here, including Mary Pedro, wife of Felix Pedro, the Italian immigrant who first discovered gold in the Fairbanks area. Markers with the names of many of the early stampeders can be found here. Besides the community lot, the cemetery was divided into individual sections. There was a Catholic section centered around a monument; a section for the Jewish community; the Pioneers of Alaska plot, the resting place of many veterans of the Alaska-Yukon gold rushes; and the individual plots of fraternal orders and societies.
