Coming in second is the Holy Assumption Orthodox Church in Kenai, followed by the Attu Battlefield, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Juneau and the Wireless Transmitter Site on Government Hill in Anchorage.

The rest of the list includes the Eagle historic district, the Colony Project Warehouse in Palmer, the 4th Avenue Theatre in Anchorage, the Victor Holm Homestead in Kasilof and Sheldon Jackson College in Sitka.
