The former Annette Island Army Air Field, near Metlakatla, Alaska, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places for its contribution to the success of World War II allied operations. One of the few remaining World War II structures at the site is a boiler house, which is scheduled to be dismantled as part of the Native American Lands Environmental Mitigation Program (NALEMP). Because of its historical significance, a team of historians employed by AERC will thoroughly document the structure’s physical characteristics and history before demolition and remediation are performed at the site.   

  • Research and compile historical information about occupancy and uses of the boiler house.
  • Document architectural and mechanical features of the building and its equipment.
  • Photograph interior and exterior of the building prior to dismantling.
