Petersburg Census Area is a census area located in the U.S. state of Alaska. It is part of the unorganized borough and therefore has no borough seat. Its largest community is Petersburg. The population was 6,684 at the 2000 census, at which time it was named the Wrangell-Petersburg Census Area. The name was changed on June 1, 2008, when Wrangell, formerly a part of the census area, was incorporated as a city-and-borough.[1] With the departure of Wrangell, the only other large population center is the city of Kake. A map of the new boundaries can be seen here:[2]
