Henry Swanson House

Saves: 7
Check-ins: 1
Built in the 1940s this is where Henry Swanson - fisherman, fox farmer, and Aleut political activist - lived. He is considered the most important figure responsible for the preservation of Aleutian history. With just over 11,000 people identifying as Aleut this preservation is more pertinent than ever and the language is considered critically endangered. If you decide to go by car, know that there will be ferry stops along the way.
