The place has been beautifully restored. There is good signage explaining what life was like in the cottage. Lovely grounds. Certainly worth a visit
We took a free walking tour from the Tourist Information Centre which took in the highlights around Skagway. Captain William Moore Cabin was the last stop. Interesting piece of history well worth a visit. It is free and right in town. The cabin has plenty of information panels if you go by yourself.
We visited the Historic Moore Homestead. It is more than the cabin. It is also the newer home and the grounds as well. Inside the newer home the rooms are decorated with period pieces. There are photographs and memorabilia from the Moore family.
Good to see the old cabin, park ranger on site to give a history of the place, quite small but well worth taking the back streets away from the souvenir shops
Well worth the walk 'behind' main street to see where that first person actually lived and to be amazed that it is in such good condition still.
The Moore cabin and house is a free museum exhibit in town, that gives an overview of the life and lifestyle of one of the first settlers in Skagway, who contributed to the town's development. It is a very small cabin and house, so not much time is required to get through it all, even if you read every display... 更多
One can just imagine what life must have been like during the gold rush days. The men didn't have much, lived simply, and persevered. We enjoyed poking around the little, old cabin and the nice grounds. Short walk from main part of town.
Seeing the original first house in Skagway, you have to imagine what it was like to live there by yourself in the middle of nowhere, and then hordes of people come to your land for a gold rush! Loved the newer house as well.
