The Reverend Richard Bowen and his wife, veterans of the Klondike Goldrush arrived here August 1, 1900 at the call of Bishop Bompas. Bowen immediately undertook with volunteer labour to build this church of logs and held his first service on October 7, 1900. The Rectory was begun three months later with the temperature at 29 degrees below zero. It has served as a social centre and a school for native children. The era of the Log Church ended on January 17, 1960 with the completion of a new cathedral. These historic buildings have played a significant role in the history of Yukon and stand as a memorial to the pioneering work of the Anglican Church in Whitehouse.
