on W coast of Kenai Peninsula, 7.5 mi. NNE of Anchor Point and 18 mi. NW of Homer, Cook Inlet Low.
This Russian name, "Staritschkow" or "Starichische," meaning "stout old man" appears to have been given about 1840 by Ilia G. Wosenesenski and published by Constantin Grewingk (1848-1849, map 3). Wosnesenski also gives the Kenai Indian name as "Stuk Talj Chin" or "Chak".
