History & History Related Items

Huslia was named after a local stream. The original site was abandoned in 1949 because frequent flooding caused problems along with swampy land. It wasn't until the 1950s, when a school, post office, airport and roads were built that people began to live in the community year-round. Up to that time, the residents moved with the seasons to different areas.
