at mouth of Nakwasina Sound, 9.5 mi. N of Sitka, Alex. Arch.
Descriptive name given in 1880, by M. Baker, U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS), because of its resemblance, as seen from the west, to the shape of a conventional straw beehive. The name was published in the 1883 Coast Pilot (p. 152).
