Whitehouse Cabins was established by Ed and Irene Whitehouse in 1953.

It was recognized in The Dawson Daily News as being the first 'tourist court' and it is largely made up of heritage buildings. 

 

In the early 1900s, the buildings were home to an accountant, barrister, merchant, clerk, hotelkeeper, yardman, wood dealer, labourers and miners. It was during this time that the infamous trapper, Soloman Albert (who replaced his own frostbitten feet with those of a slain bear), also lived here.

In later years, during the 1962 production of the musical 'Foxy' at the Palace Grande Theatre, Bert Lahr (best known for his role as the Cowardly Lion in the 'Wizard of Oz') resided in one of the guest rooms.

 

Today, Whitehouse Cabins caters to visitors from around the world and maintains a loyal customer base.
