Situated on picturesque Broadway Street in the Skagway, Alaska Historic District, our offices are in the 1899 Boa’s Bldg., part of The Mascot Group restored by Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. In addition to our news and publishing offices, the building houses Skaguay News Depot and Books. The bookstore features a wealth of Alaska and Yukon titles. This includes books produced by our in-house small press, led by the notorious Alaskan best-seller, Best of the Skagway, Alaska Police Blotter, culled from the pages of The Skagway News. Watch for Volume 2 in May 2016.
