One of the oldest surviving remnants of Russian ownership of Alaska, this two-story log structure was the home, office and chapel of Ivan Veniaminov, the state’s first Orthodox bishop. It later served as an inn, a housing for priests, and a print shop for Sitka’s newspapers. Its chapel includes several icons Innocent imported from Russia. Owned and managed by the National Park Service, it’s open to the public for tours.
