“1867-2017: 150 Years of Change,” Presentation by Richard Carstensen
2017 marks the 150th year since the United States purchased Russian interests in Alaska. What was Juneau like 150 years ago at the time of the purchase? Find out on May 4th from 6:30-8:30pm during this free presentation by Richard Carstensen at the Juneau Arts and Culture Center (JACC), sponsored by the Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum. Carstensen will describe the Juneau area, or Áak’w Aaní (small lake tribe land), at the time of purchase, its human and natural history, as well as how the land has dramatically changed between that time and today.
