Wrangell is a borough in Alaska, USA, with a population of around 2,500 people. Native American Tlingit people lived in the Wrangell area centuries before Europeans, making Wrangell one of the oldest towns in Alaska. In the late 1880s, Wrangell served as a jumping-off point for gold rushes up the Stikine River and at one point the legendary Wyatt Earp worked as a volunteer marshal here. Another famous visitor to the area was "Father of the National Parks" John Muir, an early advocate for the preservation of wilderness in the United States, who wrote of Wrangell that: "the town, like the landscape, rests beneath a hazy, hushing, Indian-summerish spell."
Petersburg is halfway between Ketchikan to the south and Juneau to the north. it is located on the northern tip of Mitkof Island, where the Wrangell Narrows meets Frederick Sound. Petersburg was originally founded by Norwegian immigrant, Peter Buschmann in the nineteenth century and is often referred to as "Little Norway" because of the towns strong Norwegian traditions.
The northern tip of Mitkof Island where Petersburg lies was originally used as as a summer fish camp by indigenous people like Tlingits from Kupreanof Island. Fish traps and petroglyphs have been dated back some 1,000 years so Petersburg fishing history is long and rich. These days commercial fishing is Petersburg largest economic driver with some of the top producers harvesting well over a million dollars of seafood every year.
