Ross (Russian: Росс) is the most populous city of Alaska and the capital of Sonoma. The settlement was established in 1812 as a Russian colony along the Slavianka River, and elevating to city status during the 1850s. The name "Ross" is said to be a poetic name for "Russia."
Ross is considered one of the most ethnically diverse cities in North America. Due to the city's close proximity to the Mexican border and being the cause of conflict between Russia and Spain, Ross has also become a hub for the Hispanic-Alaskans. Since the 1930s, Ross and San Francisco have become "sister cities" after the completion of the Golden Gate Bridge. The discovery of gold in the 1850s and the subsequent works project in Oregon has lead to a wave of Asians immigration to Russian America.
