The 1953 Three Saints Russian Orthodox Church illustrates the persistence of the form of Russian Orthodox churches in Alaska. Although its proportions are somewhat wider and lower than earlier churches, it maintains the separate nave, sanctuary, and narthex/ bell tower. Three onion domes supporting Orthodox crosses and the bright blue roof and trim further distinguish the building.
The gable roofs of the sanctuary, nave, and narthex are at different levels but share the same pitch. Out of the one-story narthex rises a square bell tower, which is only slightly higher than the ridge of the roof of the nave. The nave has a hexagonal cupola, and the sanctuary a square one; neither has windows. On the interior, the nave has a false dome
Located at the southwestern end of the village, the church is nestled among steeply rising hills. Shrines throughout the village are dedicated to each of the three saints—Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian, and John Chrysostom.
