   The Alaskan Agate B&B opened on July 4, 1992 with simple plans....a single building with four apartment suites. It wasnít long before we realized that innkeeping was our destiny. So, we didnít have to think twice as three other buildings surrounding us were placed on the market. We found our dream quickly expanded.
   With plans for expansion in mind, the need for a shorter, simpler name also became apparent. After debate and deliberation, we chose Agate Inn and we adopted a polar bear into our new logo. Harvey was very disappointed to find that a rock just wasnít recognizable in the logo.
   The Agate Inn guest complex now consists of four buildings situated on 16 heavily wooded and landscaped acres.
