The Russian-American Magazin is a historic building in Kodiak, Alaska. It was built in 1792, making it become considered as the oldest building in the state of Alaska. It is basically a warehouse and is one of the last three remaining Russian buildings to still exist in the state.

The Russian-American Magazin was built by Russians, specifically by Alexander Baranov, a Shelikov-Golikov Company manager. It is notable for being the only property to be associated with both Russian and American trading companies at different periods that operated in the state. Both of which (the Russian American Company and American Commercial Company) have great control over the administration of the state.

Also known as the Erskine House, the Russian-American Magazin is a National Historic Landmark since June 1962.
