Exploring Kodiak: Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park

By James Gaddis 12:36 PM June 19, 2014
KODIAK –

Taking a walk through Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park is like taking a trip back in time.

From old, rusty water pipes to gun emplacements, remnants of World War II can still be seen from the trails that meander through the tall Sitka spruce trees.

Inside a bunker once used to store ammunition you will find Kodiak’s Military History Museum. The interactive museum was built in 1999. Kids can sit in a working military jeep and ambulance or try on military gear from that time period.
