“Where America rushed to find gold”
Gold! Headlines read in 1897, starting the Klondike Gold Rush. Thousands, hoping to ease the woes of economic depression, sold farms, dropped businesses and boarded ships to follow their dreams north. Today Klondike Gold Rush NHP commemorates the bravery the stampeders that took the epic voyage by protecting the trails, historic boomtowns and buildings of the Klondike Gold Rush era. Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is a United States National Historical Park commemorating the Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1890s. The gold rush was in the Yukon Territory, and this park comprises staging areas for the trek there, and routes leading in its direction. The park consists of four units: three in the Municipality of Skagway Borough, Alaska and a fourth in the Pioneer Square National Historic District in Seattle, Washington. The story of the Klondike Gold Rush can only be appreciated by looking on both sides of the Canada–United States border. National historic sites in Whitehorse and Dawson City, Yukon, as well as in British Columbia, complete the story. In 1998, Klondike Gold Rush NHP joined with Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site, Dawson Historical Complex National Historic Site, and other Parks Canada sites to form the Klondike Gold Rush International Historical Park.
One of the most visited attractions in Alaska. There's a lot to do in the park, from exploring the buildings of Alaska's Gold Rush boom to some excellent hiking trails.
