“Park Services walking tour to Moore Cabin was interesting &informative”

National Park Service's walking tour from the Klondike National Historic Gold Rush Park to the Moore compound was very interesting and informative. Ranger Jay Proetto provided information re the formative years of the gold rush as well as the decline of same. Interesting stories about the people in and the buildings of Skagway kept everyone amused. NPS has some great old gold-rush/mining related photographs and items. Ranger Jay peppered the tour with stories of Moore, his family and their efforts so the Moore cabin and house compound made a great termination point. Nice job, Ranger Jay & National Park Service!

The Moore cabin is a small typical log cabin but there is nothing inside. Next to it is the newer Moore House which is furnished in period art and Victorian furniture. The famous piano where the Alaska Song was written is also found here. It is open most of the day, free, run by your National Park Service. Occasionally there are children's programs given on the lawn in front - ask at the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park Visitor Center on 2nd and Broadway. Moore House is on 5th and Spring. Don't miss the little antique shop next door with authentic gold rush items and replica gold nugget necklace.
