Seward Alaska is a coastal town 125 miles south of Anchorage.on the Kenai Penninsula. Abrupt mountain slopes cloaked in shaggy summer greens and perpetual snows form an impressive backdrop for this  progressive city of some 4,000 people.

Shipping, fishing and tourism provide Seward's economic base. Large passenger  cruise ships and freight ships call frequently at the Alaska Railroad dock.  Cargos are transferred to and from the Alaska Railroad.

Three modern fish plants process salmon, caviar, crab, herring, halibut and  other bottom fish.

A Marine Industrial Center with a 3,000-ton ship-lift has been built on the  east side of Resurrection Bay. Nash Road leading to this facility is a five-mile scenic drive looking out over the bay and the mountains.

History of Seward

The town of Seward is named for William H. Seward, who arranged for Alaska's purchase from Russia. It became a town-site in 1903 to serve as a terminal construction point for the Alaska Railroad which was to open the interior  for resource development. The railroad that was begun by private enterprise, was taken over by the Federal Government and construction was completed in 1923. This opened the Interior of Alaska to the ice-free port of Seward.
