Notes
Survey number HABS AK-88
Significance: A number of historic Russian Orthodox churches survive in Alaska, built by Native congregations in traditional forms. The modest frame structure of St. Nicholas Church is distinguished by a small belltower and a varied roof that is hipped over the sanctuary but gabled at the opposite end.
