Everyone has a story to tell
Did you know that the Alaska Highway, completed in 1942, was built using more people than the population of the Yukon at the time? Or that the White Pass and Yukon Railway was constructed for miners and funded by the gold they extracted? And who could forget the story of Louie Linken—the owner of the first toe used in the famous Sourtoe Cocktail in Dawson City? If you have forgotten, you probably need to slow down on the Sourtoe Cocktails.
These are just some of the stories that make up our colourful past. The rest are waiting for you when you get here.
