In 1914 President Woodrow Wilson authorized funds for the construction of the Alaska Railroad. Ship Creek Landing was selected as the headquarters of this effort. A "Tent City" sprang up in the wilderness at the mouth of Ship Creek, and soon swelled to a population of over 2,000. This “Tent City” became the city of Anchorage where we are based.
