History

Chichagof was the home of the Chichagof Mines, which opened in the late 1920s. The town had a post office, small businesses, and a population of about 500. However, the mines closes in the late 1950s, which caused the town to lose its outside income. While no one lives there anymore, there are now some logging and mining camps in the area that still function. Original homes and mines still remain.
