The Tlingit people, a matrilineal tribe with a historic reach stretching between Alaska and British Columbia, have lived in Wrangell Borough for thousands of years. Known for their identifying crests (Raven and Eagle) and the artistry of their totem poles, the Tlingit began trading furs with Russian explorers as early as 1811. Wrangell was established by Russia in 1834, making it one of the original Russian designated areas in the state.
Following the Alaska Purchase, the United States Government built Fort Wrangell, which operated from 1868 to 1877. The fort, as well as the area gold rush, acted as catalysts for borough migration.
Wrangell, previously a city in the Petersburg census area, was not incorporated as a borough until 2008. It is located in the Alaska Panhandle and has an area of 2,541 sq. mi.
