Notes
Survey number HABS AK-52
Significance: A number of historic Russian Orthodox churches survive in Alaska, built by Native congregations in traditional forms. This chapel was built to commemorate 100 years of Russian Orthodoxy in Alaska. The hip-roofed, almost square nave has a distinctive form, with pleasing proportions.
