According to the Yukon Historical and Museums Association, the three-room log cabin was built between 1907 and 1912. Known as the Captain Campbell House, it was occupied by riverboat captains Campbell and McKay in the 1920s. Later, it was home to Whitehorse’s first mayor, Gordon Armstrong. Robertson said someone once told her husband that Armstrong turned one of the rooms into an office. The mayor would tell people about seeing a young boy watching him. It’s the very same room which gave Robertson the chills. For a long time the house was believed to be haunted by the ghost of a young boy, possibly seven or eight years old, who drowned in the 1940s.
