Notes
Survey number HABS AK-69
Significance: A number of historic Russian Orthodox churches survive in Alaska, built by Native congregations in traditional forms. The Nikolski church is well composed, with gable-roofed sanctuary and narthex flanking a hip-roofed nave. The interior has a remarkable amount of carving, distinguishing this church among Alaskan Russian Orthodox churches.
