|History:||Former Eskimo village reported in 1890 in the 11th Census (1893, p. 76), which stated "The native village on Eagle Harbor was named Orlova by the Russians, and erroneously renamed St. Orloff on our coast survey maps. It (Eagle Harbor) is now popularly known only by the name of the bay. The Kodiak Eskimo inhabiting this village number between 60 and 70." Petroff (1881, p. 32) wrote, "The next inhabited point * * * is Orlovsk village, situated on * * * Eagle Harbor. Here is a large settlement of 278 natives and creoles." This village was called "S(eleniye) Orlovsk," or "Orlovsk Settlement," by Captain Tebenkov (1852, map 23), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), which was misinterpreted as "St. Orlovsk" in 1868 by US@C&GS.|
