Geography

Medra is located on the north bank of the Kuskokwim River,[1] about 50 km (31 mi) by air northwest of Nikolai.

History

Medfra may have been a small seasonal camp for Alaska Natives before the arrival of Europeans in Alaska. Early in the 20th century, a trading post and boat landing called "Berrys Landing" were established at Medfra. A post office was open from 1922 to 1955.
