It was built in 1918 as a replacement for an 1878 building, reusing much of the same lumber. The chapel served the Russian Orthodox community in the trading port of Akutan[2][3] and is now part of the Diocese of Alaska of the Orthodox Church in America.[4]

In 1980, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
