There is a lighthouse at Khodovarikha that used to be an important beacon for the Russian convoy route coming from the Yugorsky Strait in World War II. It was shelled in 1942 by the Kriegsmarine during Operation Wunderland. The lighthouse ceased operation in 1996.
Khodovarikha was the subject of a 2015 RT documentary Arctic Limbo, chronicling the isolation of the weather station staff in August of that year.
