Regarding St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church. The mother church of this denomination is located on North Main. According to newspaper items, the Serbians established a cemetery there in 1894 and then built the small, white church with Russian Orthodox cupola. It was the first church in North America of the Serbian Orthodox Church, though it was dedicated on December 16, 1894, under the “Greek-Russian Church of America, Diocese of Alaska.” After the 1922 Argonaut mine disaster 11 of its 47 victims were buried here.
