Fort Ross Apothecary
Description: Fort Ross is located on the northern California coast. It was established in 1812 by the Russian - American Company, a commercial hunting and trading company chartered by the tsarist government, as a food source for Alaska and to hunt sea otters. Russian craftsmen and native Alaskans from Kodiak and the Aleutian Islands constructed the fort. Since the builders had worked on forts in Alaska, the construction here was similar to the traditional stockade, blockhouses and log buildings found in Siberia and Alaska.
