Totem Bight State Historical Park

Location: North of Ketchikan, at milepost 10 on North Tongass Road.
Facilities: Historical features, trails, toilets, drinking water (é).
Special Features: In the 1930s the US Forest Service hired skilled carvers among Native Americans to salvage and reconstruct the native totem poles that had been left to rot when Natives moved to non-Native settlements to find work. The fragments of old poles were laid beside freshly-cut cedar logs, and every attempt was made to copy them traditionally. By the end of World War II, 14 totem poles and a clanhouse, or community house, were in place and are now preserved at the Totem Bight site.
