Description

Chatham was one of the earliest canneries in Southeast Alaska; it was built in 1900 and operated almost continuously until 1974. A number of New England-style wood buildings survived a fire that destroyed the large processing plant and warehouses after the cannery closed. While this property has houses and several shops, there is ample space to build additional family cabins and a boathouse.A non-commercial use agreement that runs with the land provides assurance that the privately-owned property at the other end of the cannery will not be developed as a lodge or other business that would interfere with your enjoyment of Chatham by family and friends. Fishing and hunting in the bay are outstanding. The bay is rich with salmon, halibut, crab and prawns. There are two salmon-spawning streams with excellent fly fishing for trout and dolly varden. Wildlife sightings right from the houses feature humpback whales, orcas, deer, eagles, and bears. The ATVs stored across the bay provide access for excellent deer hunting, berry picking and exploration of the surrounding mountains and a nearby lake. The property will be ready for immediate use because in addition to the home and guest house, the sale includes: furnishings in both houses; a deep water dock that accommodates float planes and large yachts; two workshops; 21' Bayliner Trophy with 115 hp Mercury outboard; 14' Lund aluminum skiff with 25 hp Yamaha outboard; two ATV's for use on Forest Service roads across the bay; Bobcat with fork and bucket; and 50% ownership of the Subchapter S corporation that provides generator power, bulk fuel storage and caretaker services for the entire cannery site. The historic Chatham Cannery site, located in the heart of Southeast Alaska's Tongass National Forest, has been a wilderness vacation home for two Alaska families for more than twenty years. One of the families is now selling its property because they are no longer able to spend significant time there.
