Visit the Original Valdez Townsite
About four miles outside of present-day Valdez is the original Valdez townsite, known as "Old Valdez" or "Old Town" to the locals. The city was relocated after after the devastating 1964 earthquake, but the Old Town site has been preserved as a memorial and walking tour of Valdez's history.
The site is easily accessible off the Richardson Highway. Look for it on your left as you drive into town.
