“Still Standing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Near slanting Heinhold's First and Last Chance Saloon, it is a miracle each of them are still standing. See for yourself.

“Amazing piece of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I love this area and so appreciate how we get a glimpse into Jack Londons life. Stop by, explore, and check out his statue too.

“Seriously sad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

It's interesting I guess but it sits on this concrete area with a big iron mess door. It looks like it would fall down any minute. There is a very good wolf casting and a nice fountain right there.
Looks like another of the Port's good ideas gone nowhere.

“If you love Jack London”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

My daughter had finished reading Call of the Wild. Seeing the cabin and the statue in front just cemented her admiration for the adventurer. It's in pretty good condition and the harbor is right there. Good place to grab a coffee/lunch and stare out at the bay.
