Klondike National Historic Site, Seattle Photos
The Alaskan Gold Rush of 1897-8, or more accurately the Klondike Gold Rush to Canada through Alaska, drew thousands of Americans, many of who went by ship from Seattle. Since Canada required each miner to bring in a year's worth of supplies, Seattle grew wealthy selling such goods to these adventurers. The National Park Service tells the story of the Rush & of Seattle's merchants who served it, in a restored heritage building of the era adjacent to the Pioneer Square heritage district.
