Wrangell, United States-port

One of Alaska’s oldest settlements, the fur trade brought Russian traders here in the early 1800s. The Americans established a military post in 1868 and named it Fort Wrangell. The town boomed during the great Gold Rush of the late 19th century and Wrangell sported gambling halls, dance halls, booze, and lawlessness. Today, commercial fishing and timber still are the mainstays for Wrangell’s economy. Explore nearby Stikine River home to hundreds of species of migrating birds, spectacular glacial valleys or watch the bears at Anan Falls rain forest.
