Petersburg Borough located in Southeastern Alaska has a fishing history that dates back over a thousand years. Carbon dated Tlingit fishing traps and petroglyphs demonstrating the act of fishing have confirmed this time estimate. Since the Alaska Purchase, fisheries have played a major role in the area. In the 1960’s Icicle Seafoods was established as a community mainstay. The top commercial fishing harvesters of the area distribute over a million dollars worth of seafood annually. The area is the fifteenth most prosperous fishing port in the country. In 2011, over 100 million pounds of seafood passed through the port. At peak fishing times, Petersburg has been among the American towns with the highest per capita income. Tourism is also a large force behind the local economy.

The community is a great place to see humpback whales during the summer months because the whales gather for feeding. Other places to visit include Eagle Roost Park, Petersburg Boat Harbor, Outlook Park, downtown Petersburg, Mitkof Island, Leconte Glacier Bay, and the numerous cabins and hiking trails around town.

Adjacent to the Borough of Juneau, as an island, Petersburg is only accessible via boat or plane. Residents driving outside of Petersburg are forced to transport their car by ferry from the island. The population of the borough is 3,273 with nearly 500 veterans also residing in Petersburg. The median household income is $61,696, and the median home price is $206,000.

With its incorporation, Petersburg became the nineteenth and most recent borough formed in the state.

Although there is a limited veteran population, a homeowners exemption does exist for disabled vets. This exemption is based on disability rating and net income. More information about the exemption can be found through the local office of the borough tax assessor.
