Whittier was originally developped during the second World War as a back-up military harbor in a stunning location surrounded (and therefore hidden) by mountains. Unexpectedly, most of the residents live in a high-rise appartment building, which, when built, was the tallest in Alaska. The community was quite isolated, until road access came to it recently. The railroad tunnel was fitted to accomodate vehicles that cross alternatively in a single lane also shared with the train. Whittier has since become a popular gateway to the Prince William Sound.
