Not much to see in this one-room cabin with humble and minimal interior, but interesting nonetheless to see where this author lived and wrote and better appreciate his circumstances and the setting where his novels evolved.

Small cabin to honor the dog. It's a rather odd attraction but this is the dog that gave Jack London Square its name! Lots of bars around this area to check out.

Not much to say about it other than it is interesting to have a reference to what is meant by a cabin that many pioneer people lived in years ago.

This is a very small building, easy to overlook. It is located on the nicely landscaped Jack London Square and is easily combined with a visit to the First & Last Chance Saloon.

You can't realy see much here. I don't know if it is ever really open. Quite an anomaly just in the middle of the Square. Lucky they saved it.

Jack London's logs cabin, along with wolves statues around the cabin seemed out of place in 2015. The cabin is small, bars on the door and windows so you can look into it and see what Jack London's life was like with items inside the cabin. The interior is bared except for a desk, small bed and other personal items.... More

Fun place to check out. A little cabin that JL stayed in. Nice read on history. After peeking inside and reading the placqus stop in at the bar next door and get another blast from the past.

The cabin is small, actually half the size of the original cabin, so make sure you don't miss it. Cool to see.
