Notes
Survey number HABS AK-203
Significance: The design for the Rukovishnikoff House dates to a 1925 proposal by the United States Bureau of Fisheries for a "4 ... room house ... for natives of the Pribilof Islands." Several dozen identical houses of this type were subsequently constructed on Saint Paul Island. The foundations and exterior walls were built of poured-in-place reinforced concrete construction, with wood framing used for floors, roof, and interior partitions. A large shed dormer was installed at a later date on the north side of the house to provide light and additional space in the attic.
