April 25, 2022, 6 pm, Virtual - Historic Preservation Public Meeting

Interested in Preserving Ketchikan’s Historic Resources?

True North Sustainable Development Solutions, LLC, and the Ketchikan Historic Commission are beginning development of a historic preservation plan and invite you to share your thoughts!

Ketchikan is rich with history and culture and has the highest density of historic and cultural resources per capita in Alaska. Ketchikan was designated nationally as a Preserve America community in 2007 for its dedication to preserving its history, elegant architecture, and deeply rooted and vibrant cultures. With over 400 resources on the Alaska Heritage Resources Survey database, Ketchikan boasts 13 properties on the National Register of Historic Places, of which three are historic districts - the Downtown Ketchikan Historic District, Steadman-Thomas Historic District, and the world famous Creek Street Historic District. In addition, there are 23 resources determined eligible that are just waiting for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.

If you have interest in preserving the community’s historic and cultural resources, then we really hope to see you at our first virtual meeting on April 25th at 6:00 pm. And, if you have information or traditional knowledge you think could help the City of Ketchikan as it develops its historic preservation plan, well, we would love to see you there too.
