Eagle Historical Society
Eagle Historical Society Review
The Eagle Historical Society has a two- to three-hour walking tour ($7) that visits six museum buildings while regaling participants with tales of the famous people (including Arctic explorer Roald Amundsen and aviation pioneer Billy Mitchell) who have passed through this historic Yukon River border town. One daily tour begins at the courthouse at 9 am from Memorial Day to Labor Day; special tours are available with advance notice. For the extra-curious traveler, there is an extensive archive and photo collection with staff available to help dig into the late 1800s at the office on 3rd and Chamberlain streets. In addition, the Museum Store offers locally made items and oriented books. Eagle is a place unlike any other in the North. If you've gone to the trouble to get here, plan to spend some time and look around.
