It is simple and square, 17.75 feet (5.41 m) in each dimension, built of logs, and is argued to be "the evocation of a rural R.O. church structure in Alaska, an outstanding example of durable utile architectural simplicity."[3][4] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
