Notes
Survey number HABS AK-54
Significance: A number of historic Russian Orthodox churches survive in Alaska, built by Native congregations in traditional forms. The well-proportioned Protection of the Holy Theotokos Russian Orthodox Church has sanctuary, nave, and belltower separately defined on the exterior. Painted white with green trim and set on a hill apart from the village, the church is a distinctive presence on the landscape.
