SEWARD (Alaska Historic Information)
All I have said applies to Seward, as well as to Valdez; and in addition it may be said that few harbors in the world are better than that of Seward, and that the Alaska Central is more favored by nature than any of the other roads headed for the Yukon. It would be most fitting if Seward, named in honor of the purchaser of Alaska, should become the largest city in Alaska, and its prospects are as good as the best now. The Alaska Central will tap one of the largest beds of anthracite coal, for which it will have a down haul and perfect harbor. At the same time it is in easy reach of the Kenai Peninsula, laden with minerals awaiting development, and the upper Cook's Inlet country, as well as the Copper River country now being staked by other railroads.
