The island where this site is located has yielded evidence of the oldest occupations in the Aleutians, as many as 8,400 years ago. The Anangula Site is what is left of a settlement of people thought to have migrated here across the land bridge from Asia.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1978.
