Browerville
 

 The city of Barrow has three sections, which can be classified as south, central, and north, and are known to residents as Barrow, Browerville, and NARL.

The Central section is the largest of the three, and is called Browerville. This has traditionally been a residential area for the city of Barrow, but in recent years many businesses have opened or moved to this area. Browerville is separated from the south section by a series of lagoons, with two connecting dirt roads. This area, in addition to the houses, includes Tuzzy Consortium Library, the US Post Office, Eben Hopson Middle School, Samuel Simmonds Memorial Hospital, the I˝upiat Heritage Center,[7] two grocery stores, one hotel and two restaurants.  The Cape Smythe Whaling and Trading Station is here. Cape Smythe was built as a whaling station in 1893 and is the oldest frame building in the Arctic.
