NewsFall 2007Text Box:   The Alaskan Agate Bed & Breakfast Inn opened on July 4, 1992.  Like many new enterprises, finding the right niche takes time and experience.
  Within a couple of years the Internet became popular and it was time to develop a web site.  As part of the process, the business name was shortened to Agate Inn.
  Then, using available clip art we searched for an Alaskan animal to combine with our new name and create a logo to represent our business.   Our
