Founded in 1968, Haines Borough is unique as it maintains the status of a home-rule borough.

Located in the northern portion of the Alaskan Panhandle, and adjacent to Skagway, Juneau, Hoonah-Angoon and Stikine in British Columbia, the borough is home to both the Tongass National Forest and the Endicott River Wilderness. During the fall, corresponding with the Salmon run, eagles flock to the area to feed. During this time, area tourism spikes.
