Here Are Some Of The Very First Photos Ever Taken Of Alaska

Alaska has a fascinating history. With evidence of civilization in this amazing state for thousands of years, we have only been documenting it for a very short period of time. In the late 1800s, decades after the first photograph was taken, cameras showed up in Alaska to document the gold rush. These old photos of Alaska are some of the first the rest of the world had ever seen of our stunning and formidable state.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
