"Jack London Cabin
Dedicated July 1 1970

Jack London lived in this cabin while prospecting in the Klondike Goldrush of 1897. The cabin was located on claim No. 151 on the north fork of Henderson Creek in the Yukon Territory. It was found in July 1968 and authenticated by the Yukon Territorial Historic Sites and Monuments Board. The Port of Oakland acquired the cabin and brought it to Jack London Square to honor the memory of the man who entriched the world with his stories of the Klondike.
