The area encompasses 27 sq. miles of land and 10 sq. miles of water.

Edna Bay is a fishing community, originally named by the U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey in 1904. Settlement was enabled by a State land disposal sale. A post office was established in 1943, but was transferred to Ketchikan in 1960.
