Klondike Gold Rush - Seattle Unit National Historical Park

Size: 13,192 Acres

Overview: Seattle played a big role in the Klondike Gold Rush, from the moment that its newspaper called attention to the steamship full of gold that arrived on July 17, 1897. The hope for quick and easy wealth drew thousands to the northwestern Canadian territory, in a veritable stampede. Today the Seattle unit of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park continues to tell the story of this rush to the Yukon gold fields, and the significant ways that Seattle influenced this event.
