When gold was discovered in the Klondike, fortune-seekers from around the world flooded through Skagway, the nearest port to the Canadian gold fields. Fifteen buildings from that era have been restored in this historic park and draw thousands of cruise ship visitors each summer.
Became an historic park on August 5, 1998. Size: 13,000 acres.
