Santa Claus House is located in North Pole, a dinky city nestling at the Fairbanks North Star Borough in Alaska, U.S. The Santa Claus House is a gift store that was built in the early days of the town. It is in fact referred as Santa Claus’ largest fibreglass statue in the world.
The store was founded by Conrad B. Miller who had migrated to Fairbanks in year 1949, and launched the trading post in 1952 along the highway. Soon through the word of mouth its popularity spread and people colloquially started referring it as Santa Claus House. Since its inception the shop has been refurbished and evolved, and still retains its reputation as the most charming roadside attraction.
The town gets stacks of mails from Santa Clause fans from all across the world. The mails are being sent by children and adult alike, and these get duly replied by the Santa. November is the month when the streets of the town turn mystical and even February is less cold than this month. The 1999 Christmas Eve in this town was very chilly as the whole December month was recorded to have -72 temperature.
Santa Claus lovers come to visit the place and see this 42- ft. Santa Claus statue erected on the Richardson Hwy throughout the year and not only in the month of December. The popular slogan of this Santa land is "Where the Spirit of Christmas Lives Year Round." The town also has several other attractions themed on Santa Claus.
