Fodor's Expert Review Chief Shakes Island and Tribal House

Wrangell Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

A footbridge from the bottom of Shakes Street provides access to this small island in the center of Wrangell's protected harbor. The Tribal House, constructed in 1940 as a replica of the original 19th-century structure, was completely restored by local carvers in 2012 and 2013, as were the surrounding totem poles. The interior of the building can be viewed for a fee; arrangements should be made through Wrangell Cooperative Association wca-t.com.
