We are in the first City!
Ketchikan has been called the First City for generations. It's the first major American port for mariners coming up the Pacific coast out of Seattle. We're about 700 miles northwest of Seattle.
Ketchikan is on the Revillagigedo Island in the archipelago that makes up most of Southeast Alaska. Rainfall averaging 150 inches a year produces lush conifer forest on steep mountain sides and feeds the myriad of streams where all five species of Pacific salmon come to spawn. It's the Salmon capital of the world!
Our community grew up around the site of a summer fish camp for the Tlingit (KLING-gut) Indians along the creek they called Kichxaan. White settlers came in the late 1800s, drawn by salmon runs, mineral deposits and timber. Commercial harvests of salmon, halibut and shellfish have been an economic mainstay for more than a century. Tourism and the timber industry are the other strong legs of our region's economy.
