This house is called Captain Martin’s House and is next to Lepage Park in downtown Whitehorse. Again with the windows! I’ve always thought this house was special. According to the Yukon Register of Historic Places, it was built around 1915 by Master Mariner Captain Patrick Martin. Click the link for more info.

  1. This house was moved to this location from Strickland Street. Years ago it served as a guest house for visitors to United Keno Hill and Cassiar Asbestos offices in Whitehorse. The house that is located next door also served in that capacity in later years.
