Pilgrim Hot Springs is located north of Nome and east of Teller on the Seward Peninsula in Alaska, USA. The site was originally a roadhouse and spa serving miners during the goldrush. Subsequently it was a Catholic mission and orphanage serving Inuit children, particularly those orphaned by the influenza epidemic of 1919. The orphanage was closed by 1941. The facility was a military camp during World War II. Subsequently it had mostly been used for agriculture. The geothermal potential is large but little-developed. The site was recently sold to a local consortium as part of the bankruptcy of the Fairbanks Diocese.
