Things To Do

Experience Russian America's Legacy

The Russian Bishop's House is one of the last remaining buildings from the Russian colonial period in North America. This original 1843 log structure conveys the legacy of Russian America through exhibits, refurbished living quarters, and lavish icons in the Chapel of the Annunciation. The free, self-guided museum of the ground floor and ranger-guided tours of the upstairs of the house are available every day during the summer, and by appointment during the winter.
