Measuring 50' X 100', this was once the largest buildings in Dyea. I was built on pilings for fear of high tide coming up that far in 1898. Warehouses were used to sort out massive piles of mining supplies and bring order to the chaos that had previously occurred on the beachfront.

Caution: Wooden pieces and rusting metal bits that you see are important reminders of the Gold Rush stampede. Please avoid handling or stepping on these fragile pieces.

Today, the warehouse is one of the few remnants in Dyea from the Gold Rush.

In the 1920's, this warehouse was used as a barn by Harriet Pullen who had a farm here in Dyea.
