Harbor Defenses of Sitka, Alaska


LOCATION : Kita Island (Fort Peirce)




Planned Searchlights 15 and 16
Planned B4S4 for Battery 291
and B5S5 for Battery 292

Construction was barely begun on Kita Island.  The Base End Station was to be a timber tower, and only the foundation was dug.  The Quonset hut camp was completed, but no work was done on the searchlights.  I have not had a chance to visit the site.
