The Fries Miners' Cabins are a group of six small houses on the 500 block of Kennedy Street in Juneau, Alaska. The six were built as essentially identical structures in 1913 to house miners working in the local gold mines. The houses are 1-1/2 story structures of wood frame construction, and are in the Craftsman style popular at the time. Of the more than 200 miner houses built during Juneau's gold boom, these are among the few that survive.

The cabins were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
