The First City

Ketchikan is located on the rocky southwestern shore of Revillagigedo Island (Revilla), part of the Alexander Archipelago. Ketchikan is the first port of call northbound into Alaska, thus earning it the nicknames of “The First City” and “The Gateway City.” The site was originally a Tongass and Cape Fox Tlingit Indians settlement, who named Ketchikan for the creek in the area “Kitschk-hin” meaning “Thundering Wings of an Eagle.”
