English: Built in 1924-26, one of the oldest Russian Orthodox churches in Alaska, the Holy Ascension Church has a cruciform plan and a hip-roofed nave that emphasizes its squareness. Featuring three altars, this church is rivaled only by St. Michael's Cathedral in Sitka for size and grandeur. In addition, the site is associated with Fr. Innocent (Veniaminov), the Russian Orthodox missionary priest who studied Aleut language and culture while living here in the early nineteenth century. From 1970, Holy Ascension Russian Orthodox Church is a National Historic Landmark.
