History & History Related Items

False Pass history:

The unusual name came about because the Bering Sea side of the strait is very shallow and large ships cannot navigate it even though it appears it is navigatible.

False Pass was first settled in the early 1900s and became to grow in earnest when a cannery was built in 1917. New residents came once the cannery was completed. It operated, except for a brief, weather related period, until it was destroyed by fire in March, 1981. False Pass was incorporated in 1990.
