Haines can base much of its existence of the famous, but very short-lived Klondike Gold Rush of 1898. Before that time, there were Tlingit Indians who passed through the area, but the first actual resident was an agent of the Northwest Trading Company who settled here in 1880. The following year a mission and school was built and named after the female who raised funding to build it, Frances Haines.

That all changed in 1898 with the discovery of gold in the nearby Yukon. Haines close proximity to the beginning of the 246-mile Dawson trail that lead to the Yukon, made it a natural supply post for the thousands of people coming to strike it rich. A year later, with the discovery of gold in the Porcupine District, only 36 miles away, Haines was on the map. The population quickly grew to 30,000.

The economy continued to grow and by the next year, four canneries had opened in the Haines area. However, with the completion of the White Pass railroad that same year, and the end of the gold rush already in sight, Haines importance quickly diminished.

Some see that as being bad, others see it as one of the best things to happen to Haines. As the town did not continue as a supply or mining town like some of its neighbors, the vices that went along with such towns did not continue. Today, the yearly population is around 2,200, and commercial fishing, timber and tourism such as Haines Shore Excursions are the main sources of income.

Haines boasts fun cruise excursions for the entire family. Join us for one of the spectacular hikes, rafting journeys on the Chilkat River which can be experienced while on our Haines Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve River Floating Excursion; kayaking adventures on Chilkoot Lake while on our Haines Chilkoot Lake State Park Kayak Excursion, or one of the other outdoor activities.
