History

Lieutenant Sarichev (1826, map 14), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), published the name of this former Aleut village as "Sel(o) Chernovskoe" or "Chernofski Village." Baker (1906 , p. 173) says, "In 1831 it consisted of 4 huts (yourts) and 44 people." The population was 70 in 1874; 101 in 1880; 78 in 1890. A US Weather Bureau station was located here during World War II.
