Golden North Hotel
Built in 1898, the oldest operating hotel in Alaska was a two story hotel, moved in 1908 by horse and capsten to its present location. A third story and the world famous golden dome was also added at this time.Corrington's purchased the property in 1997 and spent more than one million dollars renovating the Crown Jewel of the Gold Rush. Now solid and up to code, each of the 31 rooms are dedicated to gold rush families and filled with their momentos and antiques.The first floor offers a 60 seat pub, 80 seat Victorian style restaurant, 30 seat outdoor patio and Southeast Alaska’s first microbrewery.

I have found that I have still some old materials that have never seen the light of day in this blog. It's time I thought they get their share of the limelight :). Anyway, here's one of the remarkable old buildings I found in Skagway. This small coastal town, the gateway to the Klondike, is filled with preserved buildings. Thought I'd start sharing them with you.
