In the past, Anvik has also been knokwn as American Station, Anvic, Anvick, Anvig, Anvig Station and Anwig. It has traditionally been an Inglik Indian Village. The original village was northeast of here on the other side of the river. When an Episcopal mission and school were established in 1887, the residents began to move to that area. A post office was opened in 1897. The village was hard hit during the Influenze epidemic of 1918-19. The mission began to take in many of the orphans left when their parents died of the illness. Local people made income as best they could with contracts to cut wood for the sternwheelers coming up the river. Others sold supplies to the traders. Ski planes began to arrive in the 1930's to aid transportation in the area.
