Aleutian World War II National Historic Area [AK]

The Aleutian World War II National Historic Area commemorates the oft-forgotten Aleutian campaign of World War II as well as the horrific internment of many Aleut people by both Japanese and American forces. The park is located on the remains of the historic Fort Schwatka, the coastal defense of Dutch Harbor.

The park offers exhibits in the visitor center and guided tours of the park. The website offers visitor information, a history of the park, and a calendar of events. In order to contact the website via email, use the "contact us" link located on the left side of the webpage.
