Circle City is a small town (population 86) in northeast Alaska
. It's very close to the Arctic Circle
, on the south bank of the Yukon River
at the edge of the Yukon Flats
, 160 miles northeast of Fairbanks
The only reason I know about it is my great-grandfather lived there for a few years on and off when he was mining for gold in the Yukon. He met Jack London there and said he had bad manners and wasn't such a good cook.
