Highly recommend the interpretive talk...The day we were there, Dawne was the speaker - she was a wonderfully engaging story teller (clearly very interested and knowledgeable of Jack London's experiences) and we thoroughly enjoyed...

The theme of the museum seems to be more about the local historian who eventually located London's cabin. If you are a fan of Jack London this would leave you underwhelmed.

We try to find the balance in our interpretation of offering the story of the discovery of Jack London's Cabin along with a brief interpretation of Jack London himself. This is a unique story that we love... More
