Notes
Survey number HABS AK-77
Significance: The oldest Russian Orthodox church still in use in Alaska, the church at Karluk also exhibits an unusual architectural sophistication, with its pedimented Greek Revival doorway and distinctive belfry. Traditional elements of Alaskan Russian Orthodox churches -- such as the division of space, the axial alignment, and the octagonal cupola -- are also found in this pristine church, built by a cannery in 1888 for its Native workers.
