The Russians were the first to settle Alaska, and maintained control of the region until the mid 19th century, despite Spanish and British claims. In 1867 Russia sold Alaska to the United States and an administrative district was established in 1884. After the gold rush of the 1890s the population grew. The state was created from the Alaska Territory, organized in 1912.
