Established in part by President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal plan, Palmer began as a farming community and trading post for miners and hunters. Settlers moved into the area and those who adjusted to the harsh landscape prospered. Even as more industries come into the area, agriculture remains an important part of Palmer’s economy.

As industries and job opportunities in Palmer increased, so did the population. The Palmer/Wasilla area is home to more than 60,000 residents. More than 5,000 people currently call Palmer home. Additional income has led to substantial improvements to the city’s infrastructure including streets, sewer, water, and other services. Tourism also plays a large part of Palmer’s economy. The Alaska State Fair held annually in Palmer draws approximately 300,000 visitors each year to see over 10,000 exhibits on agriculture, arts & crafts, music and food.
