“Our Town” magazine is a publication of Historic Ketchikan, with support from the Ketchikan Gateway Borough and the City of Ketchikan. It is published every two or three years and brings up to date almost anything you would want to know about the community of Ketchikan.
Compiled from many sources, including many of Ketchikan’s fine photographers, the magazine is a community profile with general factual information and residents‘ opinions. It is designed to be informative and entertaining – a tribute to the spirit of a progressive community. It is not intended as a primary historical reference.
