History

Named in 1880 by Y. S. Navy officers for the 80 ft. steamboat Favorite, built in 1874. The vessel was chartered by the Navy for Alaskan surveying work and was later used to conduct trading and fishing for the herring-reduction plant at Killisnoo. It was in operation until about 1900 (DeArmond, 1957, p. 19).
