Old Log Church Museum, Whitehorse

3.8
#6 of 9 in Museums in Whitehorse
The Old Log Church Museum is one of the oldest buildings in Whitehorse, Yukon on its original site. The church was built in 1900 and the rectory behind was built in 1901, both by Reverend Richard Bowen. This was done at the behest of the Anglican Bishop Bompas who was concerned about the lack of a place of worship for the then-new community of "White Horse".

Where to stay in Whitehorse

Accommodations in Whitehorse are spread throughout the city center, easy to navigate on foot or by car. If views of the Yukon River are your top priority, you'll have to pay more to enjoy a prime riverside location in one of the hotels along Front Street. For something more budget-friendly, look for an inn or guesthouse a few streets back from the river. To immerse yourself in the wild nature of the Yukon, look outside the city itself to one of the many ranches and bed and breakfasts dotting the surrounding landscape.
