Sitka Pioneers Home

Sitka Pioneers Home
  • 120 Katlian Street
  • Sitka, AK 99835
Built in 1934 on the old Russian Parade Ground, this is a state home for elderly Alaskans. Handicrafts made by the residents are sold in the gift shop located on the first floor.  The pioneers welcome visitors.  The 13-1/2 foot bronze statue standing in front of the Pioneers Home was made by Alonzo Victor Lewis and was dedicated on Alaska Day in 1949.  The model was a real pioneer--William "Skagway Bill" Fonda.   Sitka Pioneers Home is on the National Register of Historical Places.
