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.

This was our last stop on a tour which we took with the National Park Service. The tour was excellent and the ranger provided lots of history about Skagway. The theme of our tour was the Black Buffalo Soldiers - very interesting.
