In August of 1896, three men found gold and triggered a stampede of thousands hoping to find their fortune in the wild North. It became a bustling commercial centre, and for a time it was the largest city north of Seattle and west of Winnipeg. An official National Historic Site, Dawson City still evokes the heartbeat of the greatest gold rush in history, with its boardwalks and vintage false-front buildings. What was once the capital of Yukon is now the second-largest community with a population of 2,000.
