First Presbyterian Church

The First Presbyterian Church, located at 5th and Main, is Skagway's only remaining gold rush church. It was built in 1901 by the Methodists, but in a denominational realignment, that church body vacated Skagway in 1917.The Presbyterians, who had lost their church building to afire the previous year, moved in and have remained ever since. During the gold rush, Skagway had but one house of worship, the Union Church. But by 1900, several other religious groups were in evidence.
