Project Description and Introduction

Both in partnership, The Native Village of Marshall and The Village of Ohogamiut has identified the need to formulate and implement the use of a strategic Transportation Safety Plan that will enable us to secure funding to improve our roads/trails and save lives.

Who We Are

Marshall is a traditional Yup’ik Eskimo village. The first historical reference to this village comes from records of an expedition, which came upon the Eskimo settlement of Uglovaia at this site in 1880. Gold was discovered on nearby Wilson Creek in 1913. In the ensuing gold rush, the settlement became a placer mining camp because its location on a channel of the Yukon River was convenient for riverboat landing. The village became known as Fortuna Ledge, named after the first child born at the camp, Fortuna Hunter. A post office was established in 1915, and the population grew to over 1,000. Later the village was named for Thomas Riley Marshall, Vice President of the United States under Woodrow Wilson. The community became known as Marshall’s Landing. When the village incorporated as a second-class city in 1970, it was renamed Fortuna Ledge, but was commonly referred to as Marshall. The name was officially changed back to Marshall in 1984. Subsistence and fishing-related activities support residents. Members of the Traditional Villages of Ohogamiut and Takcak also live in Marshall.
