Frequently Asked Questions
We have prepared a list of frequently asked questions.
Where did the name Fanny Hooe come from?
Legend has it Fanny Hooe was the sister-in-law of a young officer assigned to Ft. Wilkins. She arrived at the Fort with the Captain William Alburtis family in 1846. Stories of her disappearance vary, either insisting she was picking berries outside the Fort and was either lost in the nearby forest, killed and eaten by a bear who resented her intrusion on his berry patch, or she was abducted by an Indian in retaliation for white man's intrusion on former tribal lands. More information can be found in the book "The Fanny Hooe Story. . . the passing of a legend" published by the Fort Wilkins Natural History Association. The book is available in our gift shop.
