Overview

This 1915 historic site was the town's original gravesite. Upright whalebones mark, in traditional Eskimo style, some of the graves where many well known forefathers of this state rest. Alaska's well-known artist, Sydney Laurence, is buried here as is Robert Reeve, the pioneer aviator of the Anchorage-Seattle route, and Charley Stanford, who carried the mail over the Iditarod route with sled dogs. This location was designated a National Historic Site in April 1993. There is no admission fee for viewing this park.
