History and Culture
- Lime Village was named for the nearby limestone hills. The earliest recorded settlement was in 1907, when Paul, Evan, and Zacar Constantinoff were year-round residents.

A Russian Orthodox chapel, Saints Constantine and Helen, was built in 1960. A state school was constructed in 1974.

Facilities, Utilities, and Health Care
- Located on the Stony River, Lime Village is dependent on small riverboats and airplanes for transportation. Due to shallow water, barges cannot supply the community. When the river freezes, residents use dog teams and snow machines for ground travel. There is a gravel runway just north of the village that is owned and maintained by the state.
