  • "Ester City, outside Fairbanks, was named in honor of prostitute Ester Duffy, who was long famous for charming high-rollers. She had accompanied pioneers to Circle City, where she established a reputation for good-heartedness and generosity. Billy Chappell, one of Dawson's most successful miners (who eventually made millions by investing in Seattle's red light district), gave her a piano for the opening of a whorehouse called the Jewel, which she started near the American Army post of Fort Gibbon. Somehow Ester went broke there, but she sold the piano to prostitute Babe Wallace for $1,000 for another stake, following Clarence and Frank Berry to a new camp. Clarence Berry, perhaps the Klondike's most successful miner, was happily married but his brother, Frank, may have been the reason Ester established her California Hotel there. The town, originally named Berry, was re-christened in Ester's honor for reasons better left unresearched."
