122 Anway, Charlie, Cabin The Charlie Anway Cabin is a historic log cabin near Haines, Alaska, United States. It was built out of hewn logs in 1903 by Charles H. Anway, the first homesteader to settle in the Haines area. When first built, the cabin was L-shaped with a cross-gable roof with wood shingles. Anway later extended the building, giving it a T shape, and added a layer of metal from flattened cans; the roof has since been covered in galvanized corrugated sheet metal. Anway settled here and eventually produced crops which he sold at Fort William H. Seward. He farmed until 1932, and died in 1949. The cabin and two outbuildings are now owned by the Chilkoot Valley Historical Society. 59.2408330,-135.4791670

Seward, also known as Chilkoot Barracks and Haines Mission, is a site at Port Chilkoot in Haines Borough, Alaska, about 0.5 miles (0.80 km) from the city of Haines.

149 Juneau Downtown Historic District The Juneau Downtown Historic District encompasses the historic commercial heart of the city of Juneau, Alaska. It extends along South Franklin Street, from the cruise terminal in the south to Second Street in the north, and westward along Second and Front Streets to Main Street. This area was the center of Juneau's economic activity from its founding in 1880 as a gold mining camp, through its growth into an urbanized area in the early 20th century, including its eventual designation as the territorial capital in 1906. In the early days of the gold mining camp business was centered in the area bounded by Front, Main and South Franklin, with maritime activities in particular eventually extending further south along the shore of the Gastineau Channel by making land using mine tailings. The early buildings have relatively utilitarian architecture, while those of the early 20th century are somewhat more ornate, with Late Victorian details. Notable buildings from this period include the Alaska Steam Laundry (174 S. Franklin) and the Valentine Building (202 Front Street). 58.2994440,-134.4041670
