By 1907, Ester City had a population of around 200 people, with a thriving mining industry. (The post office retained the name of Berry until 1965, when it was finally changed to that of the town it had been in for 55 years.)[http://www.esterrepublic.com/Archives/mreckard6.html] In the mid-1920s, the Fairbanks Exploration Company began buying claims on Ester Creek, started operations in 1929, and in 1933 built a mess hall for their camp in Ester (now a historic landmark and still in use today as a tourist attraction and hotel). It is part of the 'Fairbanks, Alaska Metropolitan Statistical Area'. The population was 1,978 at the 2007 United States Census census.
