This is the school house today. It has been moved from it's original spot. It is one of only about 2 original buildings still standing in Point Agassiz. A Petersburg family owns it now.
When we visited Point Agassiz, we anchored our boat just off of this beach. It is like a 'down south' beach with warm, white sand. It was a lovely place for a picnic lunch and a good book.
If you collect drift wood, you can see there is lot of it here.
There is nothing more beautiful than Southeast Alaska views on a sunny autumn day.
