Meadow Lakes history:

Here is a short history for Meadow Lakes.

The name of Meadow Lakes first came into use around 1942, but it wasn't until after world war II that homesteaders began to settle this area. The completion of the George Parks Highway in 1971 helped bring others to the community, along with low housing costs and a slower-paced semi-rural lifestyle. Most residents of the area commute to Palmer, Wasilla and Anchorage for employment.
