Sitka Island

This island is also called Baranof and is situated some 150km Southwest of Juneau, the capital of Alaska. Nowadays there are about 10.000 people living there in a mild maritime climate.

This island had already been settled back in ancient times with the main village Shee Atika. Alexander Baranof, the leader of the Russian Alaska Company, enlarged this village in 1799 to an important trading post for trappers. In 1808 the city now called Sitka became the capital of Russian Alaska still the churches show the prosperity of those old times. Even after Alaska has been sold to the US on Oct 18, 1867 Sitka stayed the capital of Alaska until 1906.
