Fort Ross was a thriving
Russian-American Company settlement from
1812 to 1841. This commercial company
chartered by Russia's tsarist government
controlled all Russian exploration,
trade and settlement in the North
Pacific, and established permanent
settlements in Alaska and California.
Fort Ross was the southernmost
settlement in the Russian colonization
of the North American continent, and was
established as an agricultural base to
supply Alaska. It was the site of
California's first windmills and
shipbuilding, and Russian scientists
were among the first to record
California's cultural and natural
history. Fort Ross was a successfully
functioning multi-cultural settlement
for some thirty years. Settlers included
Russians, Native Alaskans and
Californians, and Creoles.
