Home of Captain Robert A. Bartlett


Brigus is the hometown of one of the greatest Arctic explorers, Captain Bartlett. His home was the Hawthorne cottage, and the tunnel was built for him and his fishing work.

He was born and raised in Brigus, and despite his mother wanting him to be a minister, his love was always the sea. He was a pioneer in exploring the arctic, but he always returned home to Brigus.

You can visit a monument for Captain Bartlett Memorial on Church Hill.

Don’t forget to visit also Hawthorne Cottage and Brigus Tunnel.

Photo: The photograph was taken on board the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Bear after Captain Bartlett had completed his march of 700 miles in 37 days from the camp on Wrangel Island.
