History
  Alaska Travel Tip

It is believed that the first setters arrived in Alaska about 4,000 B.C, some time before the Russian trappers, who arrived in the mid-1700s and took ownership. United States purchased Alaska from Russia on October 18, 1867 for $7.2 million dollars, less than two cents per acre. By the early 1900's population stood around 60,000, with the majority of the people Eskimos, Indians and Aleuts. Remnants remain of the Russian culture and the Eskimo traditions are strong, however, the majority of Anchorage, Alaska, residents are of European descent.
