St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, Juneau, Alaska
Sent to me by Gwyn in Juneau, Ak.
In 1894 a varied yet single-minded group of people joined together to build a church. Native Alaskans, Serbian miners, towns people, Orthodox and Non-orthodox took up the call for the building of a Russian Orthodox Church in the young but energetic town of Juneau, Alaska. The result was St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church.
