There are a number of original buildings/structures throughout town from the gold rush days and this park has done a great job of maintaining them and growing the city around them properly. Highly recommend visiting this park.

Coming from the Klondike museum in Seattle this helped the kids and adults tie it all together. With junior ranger programs and interactive exhibits they really got the whole picture of how this town came to be. Very well done and awesome employees.
