ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Alaska Association for Historic Preservation has released its top ten list of historical spots in danger of being erased and a log cabin in downtown Anchorage is one of them.
The Berg-Brown cabin located on fourth avenue down town has been in Anchorage since the 1920's when its first residents Jack and Nellie Brown moved in. They lived there until the 1930's when the Tummi family from Finland took over the tiny red cabin.
The historical landmark is in danger of being replaced unless it is moved. The problem is new ownership. The cabin was converted to a baptist church by Robert Yahara in 1980 but has since come under new ownership.
Unless the cabin is moved from its current location next to the soup kitchen down town it could be demolished.
