The original, pre-earthquake site, known as Old Valdez, is located 4 miles from downtown via the Richardson Highway (watch for signed turnoff).
Information sign about Old Valdez town site at Mile 0.1 mile on access road. A memorial at Mile 0.4 has 2 plaques that are set in a foundation from “old” Valdez. One plaque lists the names of those residents of Valdez and Chenega who were killed in Good Friday earthquake on March 27, 1964.
