The Old Log Church in Whitehorse, Yukon

The Old Log Church in Whitehorse, Yukon. Hubby has served at churches of this era that were heated only by a wood stove until later in the century. Can you imagine how worship at the Old Log Church must have been? Winters in Whitehorse, Yukon are much colder than in Tennessee. Attending services here in early 1900s is a testimony to the missionaries of this Anglican church and to the spirit of the Yukon settlers.

The Old Log Church Museum is closed on Sunday. A nominal admission fee supports the museum. We arrived during the off-hours but the grounds were open. A large sign tells the story of Bishop Isaac Stringer, also known as the Bishop who ate his boots. While in the snow in the Yukon wilderness, the bishop was forced to eat his last resource - his shoes!
