Harbor Defenses of Sitka, Alaska


LOCATION : Hill 800, Kruzof Island (Fort Babcock)




Planned B1S1 for Battery 290

No construction was done at Hill 800.  The base end station was to be a timber tower.  The military planned a road from Shoals Point to Hill 800 but underestimated the distance and never finished.  I have not yet had a chance to visit the site.
