History

The North American Transportation and Trading Company established a supply post and riverboat landing here about 1897, named for Charles H. Hamilton, assistant manager of the company. Lieutenant L. A. Zagoskin, Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), recorded in 1844 an Eskimo settlement or camp at or near this place spelled "Aungua-mut" on an 1850 map.
