As "locals" from a nearby Southeast Alaska community we were interested in seeing some of the history of the building of Skagway. The small minimalist cabin gave an appreciation to the hardy folks that settled Alaska.

It's advised not to miss the story of Captian Moore in his historical spot during the Klondike Gold Rush. The fact that this place still stands in light of the history is amazing. If you DONT learn the history behind it, you will be dissappointed.

Whilst taking a walking tour around Skagway, we came across Captain Moore's Cabin. This lovely restored building has a fascinating history and we were surprised that there was no admission charge! well worth a few minutes to look around.

Our group of 8 geocachers from Vancouver happened to spot this piece of history as we walked around Skagway caching and site-seeing. Lots of information about the family, worth a stop to take in the history.
