  • This is a good place to see and learn about some history in Sitka. There are a lot of stairs so if you have a hard time with stairs, there is a wheelchair path.  more »

  • Neat historical site that's easily accessible and worth your time to visit if you're even remotely interested in history. Easy walk up with ADA accessible ramps and handrails, stairs in back, trash can at the top, and it's clean and well kept. Having came to Sitka for work, I left knowing a bit of the history of this place and I enjoyed it. Seems no matter Russian or American, we always find a way to screw over the Natives. Sad.
  • The historic value of this place cannot be overstated, the site of the purchase of Alaska from Russia as well as being a fortress for many. Make sure to add this to your "must visit" list.
  • Awesome food and great service. Summer hours in the second picture.
  • A must visit for every tourist in Sitka
