    People have lived on the Kenai Peninsula for over 8,000 years. The land and waters provide plentiful fish, especially salmon, and game, for people past and present. It is believed that Eskimo people were the initial inhabitants, and later Dena'ina, whose descendents live throughout the region today. Russian traders built Fort George near the mouth of the Kasilof River in 1786. Descendants of the Natives and Russians number about 1,000 people in the area today. Americans came to the peninsula after the U.S. purchased Alaska in 1867. The area's population stayed relatively small until the post-World War II years.
