The most northerly all-year port in North America, Valdez' prized harbor was discovered by Spanish explorers in 1790. The town itself didn't appear until 1898, when it became a gold rush center. In the 1970s Valdez hosted a second rush, this time for 'black gold,' becoming the southern terminus of the trans-Alaskan pipeline that starts in Prudhoe Bay.
