PO Box 449 - Barrow, AK 99723
The traditional name for this community is Ukpiagvik ("place for hunting owls"). But a British sailing officer named Beechey on a surveying expedition in 1825-26 named the place after Sir John Barrow of the British Admiralty, and the name on the subsequently printed maps prevailed. Barrow is the northernmost community in America and is located on the Chukchi Sea coast. It lies 330 miles north of the Arctic Circle and 725 air miles from Anchorage.
