A work crew and some heavy equipment moved the canoe in front of Kettleson Memorial Library on Wednesday morning.
The wooden canoe is adorned with Tlingit designs, and has been parked between Centennial Hall and Kettleson for years. It was commissioned in the late 1960s by the Greater Sitka Chamber of Commerce, and carved by George Benson, Herman Kitka and Andrew Hope.
The city of Sitka is redesigning the grounds around the canoe. So, it made the trip across the construction site on a flatbed truck to its temporary home in the Crescent Harbor shelter. It will remain there until renovations are complete.
