  • Morpac Cannery (Jet Lowe)

Built on piling, the Morpac Cannery incorporates several older buildings into a modern, working cannery. The one-and two-story, wood-framed buildings are covered with wood sheathing or corrugated metal and are well lit by small-paned windows. The complex includes processing buildings, equipment storage and workshop buildings, as well as offices, dormitories, and mess halls, to comprise one of the most picturesque canneries in Alaska.
