It was pure envy, and a vow to put progressive, high achieving African Americans in their place that would cause the demise of the Black Mecca many called “Little Africa”, and its destruction began the way much terrorism, violence and dispossession against African Americans did during that era. A young White woman accused a young Black man of attempted sexual assault, which gave local mobs and White men acting as police just cause to invade the unsuspecting community. On the malevolent and horrifying attack,

It’s an easy 1-mile loop with breathtaking views of a volcano and gorgeous Alaskan landscapes, and you learn about Tlingit and Haida native culture through all the totem poles and informative signs. I also recommend spending some time in the visitor center (also free) where you can learn even more and see totem poles being carved!
This is one of the top things to do in Sitka. If you’d like to see more things to do in Sitka, check out this video:

ST. GEORGE EPISCOPAL CHURCH
Location:Ft. George Rd. Between Palmetto Ave. and Admiral Blue Rd.
City: Fort George Island
Description: St. George Episcopal Church, designed by Robert S. Schuyler and built in 1882, is a fine example of Carpenter Gothic, one of the most distinctive varieties of church architecture. Such churches were promoted by Florida’s second bishop, John Freeman Young (1820-1885) just after the Civil War. Bishop Young divided north Florida into regions defined by major water bodies. These churches along the St. Johns River included St. George Episcopal Church on Ft. George Island. Using local materials and craftsmen, Carpenter Gothic became the preferred form of church construction from 1867 to 1924. Gothic architectural characteristics are defined by: a steep gable roof, a narrow rectangular building shape, pointed lancet windows and a bell tower. New York architect R. Dennis Chantrell (1783-1872) best described this type of church as “a handsome church, which is a kind of standing sermon.”
