Wrangell is a borough in Alaska, USA, with a population of around 2,500 people. Native American Tlingit people lived in the Wrangell area centuries before Europeans, making Wrangell one of the oldest towns in Alaska. In the late 1880s, Wrangell served as a jumping-off point for gold rushes up the Stikine River and at one point the legendary Wyatt Earp worked as a volunteer marshal here. Another famous visitor to the area was "Father of the National Parks" John Muir, an early advocate for the preservation of wilderness in the United States, who wrote of Wrangell that: "the town, like the landscape, rests beneath a hazy, hushing, Indian-summerish spell."
