Historic Walking Area
Learn about the little-known conflict between Russian colonists and the Tlingit people at Sitka National Historic Park/Totem Park. This park wasn't dedicated until 1972, but had been preserved since the late 19th century for its cultural and historical value. In 1804, the park was home to the Battle of Sitka between Russians and Tlingits. Now, you can enjoy the park's nature, woodland plants, and wildlife. Walk along paths and spot salmon at the mouth of the Indian River. Take in the craftsmanship of the various totem poles, including the Yaadas Crest Corner Pole, which mark the rich heritage of the region. Finally, visit the Russian Bishop's House, one of the Western Hemisphere's only remaining examples of Russian Colonial architecture.
