History

Name derived from the Russian name Mys Plovinnoy meaning "Halfway Cape" and published by Tebenkov in 1852. This is a translation of a Russian name reported by Elliott (1881, Saint Paul notes) as "Polavina," which "literally signifies 'halfway,' so used by the natives because it is practically halfway between the salt-houses at Northeast Point and the village (Saint Paul)." Published as "M(ys) Polovinnoy" (Halfway Cape) by Captain Tebenkov (1852, map 21), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN).
