History & History Related Items

New Stuyahok history:

The present site of New Stuyahok is not the original location of the town. The first location was known as "Old Village" or "Nunachuak." In 1918, residents moved to Stuyahok to herd reindeer for the government. This site was not ideal as there was flooding and it was too far inland to have barge service. Once the reindeer population was gone, there was no real reason to stay. Rather than disband the town, resident re-located downriver to the present site in 1942. This permanent place for New Stuyahok was also chosen for its improved access to the Bristol Bay Salmon fishery.

The area received a post office in 1961, also their first school. New residents came to boost its population to second largest, next to Dillingham. An airstrip was also built which helped to bring in new business and residents.
