Beautiful house of judge wickersham worth a visit. The docent is fantastic, knowledgeable and interesting. This judge had a very interesting life committed to Alaska. If you have any interest in Alaskan history, don't miss this house.

part of our outing off the Nieuw Amsterdam, we were a group of 8 geocachers-CCC-Canadian Cruisin'Cachers, we were caching around Juneau and heading back down by easier side streets, and came across this piece of local history. Very historic and interesting.

We decided to make the hike to Wickersham State Historic Park and were glad we did. This is a hidden or should a hoofing gem. Hoofing because it's a steep climb to the house. Also some good native collections of dolls, ivory, and memorabilia.

We walked up the hillside to visit one of Juneau’s historic sites – Judge Wickersham’s house. We had seen the judge’s Fairbanks home, and we were interested in seeing the judge’s Juneau home which was larger and finer. Only the first floor is open for...More

Stopped here on a self-guided walking tour and unfortunately it was closed - Saturday, but the building was nice enough to from the outside with some information about the site so my trip wasn't completely wasted.
