History

Russian name from the word "zapad" meaning "west," reported by Putnam (1903, p. 1016), U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS). According to Elliott (1881, p. 19), the Russians imported Aleuts of other islands, for their fur seal industry, and about 1787 a village was established at Zapadni Bay.
