The Sitka National Historical Park

The Russian Bishop’s House is operated by the National Park Service as part of the Sitka National Historical Park. The park was created to commemorate the 1804 Battle of Sitka—fought between the native Tlingit people and the Russians. The park’s main attraction is the collection of Tlingit and Haida totem poles standing along the park’s coastal Totem Trail. Ranger-led totem hikes are held daily during the summer months and you can also watch Tlingit artists at work in the park’s cultural center.
