Overview

Sitka City is a city located on the west side of Baranof Island in the Alexander Archipelago of the Pacific Ocean (part of the Alaska Panhandle), in the state of Alaska. The borough seat is Sitka, the only incorporated section. Sitka, the "First City of Alaska," is the state's fourth-largest in terms of population. The name Sitka means "People on the Outside of Shee," being the Tlingit name for Baranof Island. The town is often referred to as "Sitka-by-the-Sea."

Things to Do

St. Lazaria Island is just one of the 2,500 islands throughout Alaska that comprise the Alaska Maritime Wildlife Refuge. It was originally designated as a "refuge for seabirds" in 1909, but received official wilderness designation from congress in 1970. It was added to the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge in 1980. It is a popular day boat-trip for Sitka's or a place to cruise around for fishermen already in the area. It is clearly visible from Mt. Edgecumbe.

The Isabel Miller Museum is the city museum of Sitka, Alaska. The museum is located in the Harrigan Centennial Hall, in downtown Sitka. Its collection focuses on Sitka's history from the Tlingit people, through the European explorations and Russian era and after. The museum's exhibits include the time period when Sitka was effectiv-ely the capitol of the U.S. Alaska district, through the development of Sitka's Mission School, which became Sheldon Jackson College, the discover of gold on nearby Chichagof Island, the Flight Around the World Sitka stopover, fox farming on the islands surrounding Sitka, and World War II's impact on Sitka. The museum also has large collections and archives not on display and archives, accessible my staff for research purposes.
