From the Zillow listing:


LORING, ALASKA HOME AND LOT. This property represents a unique piece of Alaskan history. Remotely located approximately 15 miles from Ketchikan, the home was originally constructed in 1885 for the local cannery superintendent. It has retained the charm of bygone days! One can even imagine watching the large sailing ships coming into the area when you stand on the home’s deck.Gorgeous view from the house. Covered porch, woodstove, and Lot 4 is vacant except for a large storage shed. Both properties have great access to the State of Alaska dock. Easy to tie up your boat and enjoy the amazing, historic retreat! Such a beautiful piece of SE Alaska where fishing is right in your front yard!
