Sheldon Jackson Museum was the first museum in the territory of Alaska and its first concrete building. The museum was commissioned by Sheldon Jackson and designed by architect Charles Geddes of Boston to house Jackson's collections. This one-story octagonal structure is an important integrated element of the Ludlow and Peabody plan.
Ownership of the museum and collection was transferred to the State of Alaska in 1983, with the stipulation that the collection would remain on campus.
