This summer marks the start of a three-year project to restore Unalaska's Holy Ascension Cathedral and its nearby structures.
Right now, project leaders are focused on the Bishop's House. It has sat idle since a previous renovation effort stalled out about 15 years ago.
"It's just been sitting here getting stale," said Al Williams, a retired preservation specialist who spent 34 years with the National Parks Service. "I'm working right now at trying to button up the exterior."
