“Gold!” is what the 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 National Historical Park commemorates the bravery of the stampeders who voyaged north by protecting the trails, historic boomtowns, and buildings of the Klondike Gold Rush era.
