History & History Related Items

Aleknagik history:

Though not a very large community, Aleknagik had around 200 residents in the late 1800's. During the infamous influenza epidemic in 1918-19, few people escaped the sickness and most died. Those who remained were moved out of the area. It was around 1928 that former residents began to return after a religious group of Seventh-day Adventists began a colony at the site. By 1931, though a shadow of its former self, the village had grown to about 40 people. By 1940, a post office had been established and a school built on the lake shore. In 1960, a 25 mile road was built connected Aleknagik to Dillingham. The population decreased with the building of the road as people moved to Dillingham, only returning to Aleknagik during the fishing season.

Aleknagik was incorporated as a second-class city in 1973.
