Gold-rush boomtowns, ancient Native villages, railroad camps, and timber towns - the diversity of Alaska's communities, and the people who made them grow - are threads in the tapestry of life in the North. All over the state, communities young and old, Native and non-Native, coastal and Interior, on or off the road system—each can claim a distinctive personality.
Every city, town, or village can claim a rich supply of oral and written stories from days gone by, whether it was a railroad boomtown, or founded by a swindler, or sprouted in a prime spot on the river.
Russian Orthodox priests and monks were among the first Christian missionaries to arrive in Alaska in the 1700s.
