Located two miles west of town on the Haines Highway, this historic cabin is tucked away in the woods just off the road. It’s a bit difficult to find, since there are no signs marking the site, but it’s worth the hunt. Charlie Anway, one of the town’s early pioneers who homesteaded the property, built the cabin in 1903. Anway had a knack for gardening and eventually developed the famous Anway strawberry—a berry so large and juicy that Haines became known as the Strawberry Capital of Alaska. In 2003, the property was donated to the Chilkat Valley Historical Society; plans are in the works to restore the cabin and open it to visitors.
