Explore World War II Ruins in Unalaska
Walk in the footsteps of World War II soldiers at Fort Schwatka in Unalaska, Alaska. During the Aleutian Campaign, the U.S. Army built over 100 buildings at the fort, sitting 897 feet above sea level; the highest coastal defenses in the United States. While many of the wooden structures have since collapsed, you can still take a self guided tour among the old lookouts and gun mounts. Permits are required and available for purchase at the visitor center in Unalaska. Learn more on the NPS Aleutian World War II National Historic Area website.
