Spirit Mountain Artworks, Mile 33, Edgerton Highway, Chitina
- Spirit Mountain Artworks has a reputation for showing a wide variety of fine art, quality crafts, and attractive gifts at reasonable prices. We also welcome guest artists from around the world who have their own perspectives on Chitina, the Copper River, Wrangell Mts. and Alaska.
The gallery itself is on the National Register of Historic Places, a "false-front" building, one of the first to be built in Chitina during the copper boom of the early 20th century. It was restored by owner Art Koeninger, a jeweler, between 1978 and its opening in 1986.
Located at Mile 33 of the Edgerton Highway, near the confluence of the Copper River and Chitina River in eastern Alaska, and nestled between the Chugach and Wrangell Mountains, Chitina (pronounced "Chit' na") has been inhabited by Ahtna Athabascan natives for 5-7,000 years.
