Cabin History

Located within Pioneer Park, Cabin #13 is believed to have been part of the original homestead owned by Dr. Young, one of the first dairy farmers in Fairbanks. It was eventually moved to Pioneer Park, host to many tourists worldwide looking for uniquely Alaskan art, from 11th Avenue. The original cabin was in such rough shape that a few years ago the current Cabin #13 replica replaced it.  As much of the old cabin was saved as could be (notice the log beams) and is incorporated in this cabin.
