Notes
Survey number HABS AK-50
Significance: Constructed in 1935-36, this church is one of the few buildings on the island that was not constructed by the government. Financed by the natives, the church's separate elements -- sanctuary, nave, narthex, and belltower -- are clearly expressed on the exterior. Unusual details include the ogee-arched portico, echoing the shape of the onion dome, and pointed-arched windows.
