The town of Sitka offers much more!
Nestled against the rugged peaks on the west side of Baranof Island in Southeast Alaska is Sitka, a jewel in the North Pacific. Rich in Tlingit and Russian history, blessed with abundant marine and wild life, great fishing and the Tongass National Forest, it it no wonder it ends up on the 'bucket list' of places to see.
The town of Sitka is both beautiful and historic, providing many sites of historic interest in picturesque beauty. The Tlingit (pronounced klink-et) Native Americans were the original settlers of this region. Travelers to Sitka can still enjoy learning about that culture at the Sheldon Jackson Museum, and a few local shops feature Tlingit hand-woven baskets, carvings, and art. A visit to the totems, some as high as 80 feet, in Sitka National Historical Park is a must.
The Russians were the first Europeans to settle on Baranof Island. After encounters with the Tlingit Indians, they established Sitka as the Russian capitol of territorial Alaska and the town became a center of trade in the fur business. When Russia sold Alaska to the U.S. in 1867 for $7.2 million, the transfer was signed in Sitka.
Reminders of Russian settlement are abundant in this town of 8,500 people. A walk around town, including stops at local museums, gives visitors a deep look into local history.
The Alaska Raptor Rehabilitation Center should be on your must see list in Sitka. Injured birds of prey, primarily eagles, are brought to the center from far and wide. The birds are tended to by veterinarians and rehabilitated for life in the wild. All birds except those permanently damaged eventually return to their natural habitat. It’s a great project and a great chance for people to get up close and personal with our national symbol.
The Sitka Fine Arts Camp recently took over the old Sheldon Jackson campus and are offering artistic classes, education and entertainment throughout the year.
It’s a charming town that still has the sense of community most people in the lower 48 long for.
