Matanuska-Susitna Borough (often referred to as the Mat-Su Borough) is located in the state of Alaska with its borough seat located at Palmer and the largest city being Wasilla. The Mat-Su Borough is so designated because it contains the entire Matanuska and Susitna Rivers. These rivers empty into Cook Inlet which is the southern border of the Mat-Su Borough. The Mat-Su Valley was originally inhabited by Athabaskan Indians and was explored by Russians in 1818. In 1880 a trading station was built in Palmer and the area was settled by gold miners in 1913. Wasilla was originally inhabited by the Dena'ina Indians and the city began when the Alaska Railroad was constructed in 1917. In 1935, as part of the New Deal, 200 families from the Midwest traveled to Alaska and started the Matanuska Valley Colony.
