History

This was originally an Eskimo village called "I-gi-ahk", recorded on a 1910 manuscript map by H. C. Fasset, U.S. Bureau of Fisheries (USBF). The local name "Mosquito Point" was reported in 1937 by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and published by Mertie (1938, pl. 1), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). In 1937 this village consisted of 40 white people. A territorial school was there. It is no longer permanently occupied.
