Harbor Defenses of Sitka, Alaska


LOCATION : Sitka Point, Kruzof Island (Fort Babcock)




Planned Searchlights 3 and 4

No construction was done at Sitka Point.  A planned road from Shoals Point never got as far as Sitka Point.  The Army initially wanted to put one of the 200 series gun batteries at Sitka Point, but later decided to put it on Makhnati Island.  I have not yet had a chance to visit the site.
