Step back in time by a century and visit our community museum in the McCabe College Building, at 7th and Spring Street in the Historic District.
Skagway’s most treasured artifacts, memorabilia, photographs and historical records of the past century are in the Skagway Museum, renowned for its fine Alaska Native heritage collection of baskets, beadwork, and carvings, and for its Gold Rush collection of artifacts and tools used by the gold seekers. McCabe College, built in 1899 of native granite, was Alaska’s first institution of higher education. It has served as a school, court house, jail, and marshal’s office for Skagway, the first incorporated city in Alaska. In 2000, the City of Skagway celebrated its centennial and the completion of a new addition to the venerable century-old McCabe Building, which has served as City Hall and Skagway Museum since 1961.
