Here is the cabin that Jack London lived in while he was in Alaska and now resides in Jack London Square.. It's very small and not open; however, the plaque on the front explains its brief history.

Just the other side of this historical landmark is a bar where Jack himself bellied up to the bar! Grab a cold brew and take in the history!

It sits in the middle of the square and is an interesting place to see. A bit disappointing but also interesting that it is partially real and another part of is is elsewhere (I think I read Canada). A few minutes and done!

Unless you are a real Jack London fan, or already in Jack London Square, this is not likely worth a special trip there. A small prospectors cabin was brought from Alaska and rebuilt here. You can peek inside. Not a lot to see.

The one thing that we noticed immediately is the entry through a low door into a low ceiling and darkened tiny bar. The home of Jack London is now a well-trafficked historical sight of the famous author. Stay for a drink or not, but at...More
