Morzhovoi Alaska 1972

Morzhovoi is an abandoned Alaska Native village located on Traders Cove across from False Pass  Alaska .  These pictures are from 1972 when some of the False Pass Cannery crew took a boat to the village.  There were some abandoned personal papers in some of the buildings.

When the fur trade crashed in the early 20th century many of the residents moved to other areas to survive.  Most of the rest of the Morzhovoi residents moved to False Pass in the early 1920’s to work in the cannery and to fish for salmon.

Many of the buildings have fallen down since these pictures were taken.
