1 mi. E of Aialik Bay, 16 mi. SW of Seward, Chugach Mts.
Named in 1909 by U. S. Grant, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), for John Lechner, prospector, then living at Seward; Lechner and F. P. Skee "probably had more to do with the finding of lode gold north of Seward than any other two men." See Skee Glacier.
