Learn About Whittier’s History

Covered by clouds and surrounded by peaks, Whittier was founded as a secret military instillation during World War II. The Prince William Sound Museum features numerous displays describing Whittier's unusual military history, but for many, the most striking exhibit is on Anton Anderson and the “dynamite kings” who built the tunnel. However, the region was previously inhabited by the Sugpiaq people. The region is officially recognized as the Kenai Mountains Turnagain Arm National Heritage Area for its natural, cultural, historic and scenic relevance.
