Location of Juneau, Alaska

Juneau City and Borough is a borough located on the Gastineau Channel in the Alexander Archipelago in the state of Alaska. The city is nestled at the base of Mount Juneau, and across the channel from Douglas Island. As of 2000 the population is 30,711. The borough seat is the city of Juneau. Juneau is the only incorporated place, because the city and borough boundaries coincide. Juneau is the only mainland state capital in the US which has no roads leading to it. The only way to get there is with a boat or plane.

Juneau is the capital city of Alaska and is located in the Alaskan Panhandle. The State Legislature meets in the Territorial Building.

There are several glaciers near hiking trails (including the Mendenhall Glacier), one bridge to Douglas Island, an airport, and dead-end roads. A car brought to Juneau must be put on a barge or ferry first.

The Auke and Taku people have lived here for thousands of years. They are Tlingit, with rich artistic traditions including carving, weaving, orating, singing and dancing. After gold was found, a mining camp sprung up. The town was organized in 1881. By the turn of the century, the placer miners had wandered on, but large underground mines were being developed. Juneau was a gritty mining town up through the 1940s. The mines shut down during World War II under wartime orders, as they were not considered essential.

After the completion of the Alaska Pipeline (to take petroleum from the Arctic shore to the Pacific coast), Juneau grew with the growth of state government.

Juneau was named after gold prospector Joe Juneau. The Tlingit name of the town is Dzántik'i Héeni, and Auke Bay just north of Juneau proper is called Aak'w in Tlingit. The Taku River just south of Juneau was named after the cold t'aak wind that blows down from the mountains and is the source of some of Juneau's more unpleasant weather.
