Welcome to Nondalton!

Nondalton is a Dena'ina name first recorded in 1909 by the U.S. Geological Survey. The village was originally located on the north shore of Six Mile Lake, but in 1940 growing mudflats and wood depletion in the surrounding area caused the village to move to its present location on the west shore. The post office, established in 1938, relocated with the villagers. Nondalton formed an incorporated city government in 1971.

Nondalton is a Dena'ina (Athabascan and Iliamna) village with a fishing and subsistence lifestyle.
