King Island is a small island that sits about 40 miles off the coast of Alaska. The island was “discovered” in 1778 by famous explorer James Cook, who named it after a fellow traveler, James King. But this is no ordinary island…
The side of the terrifying island is decorated with nearly 50 spooky-looking houses. And then there’s an element of mystery — where have all the people gone? This stilt village has been abandoned for decades, sparking rumors and fascination.
This island village known as Ukivok is quite a disturbing sight. The tiny hillside town features approximately 45 stilt houses…and no people.
By 1970, King Island had no more residents remaining. For some reason, they had gone and left a desolate and deserted stilt city.
