Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site

Not long after gold was discovered in large quantities in the Klondike, dredges were brought into the Yukon—the first dredge was built in the fall of 1899. One of the two dozen dredges that worked this area, Dredge No. 4 was designed by the Marion Steam Shovel Company. The dredge rests on Claim No. 17 below Discovery on Bonanza Creek, near the spot where it ceased operations in 1960. Dredge No. 4 is the largest wooden hull, bucket-line dredge in North America and is a significant example of corporate
industrial mining in Canada.

White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad

Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, the White Pass & Yukon Route was completed in 1900 with the driving of the ceremonial Golden Spike in Carcross, YT. Known as “The Scenic Railway of the World”, it took the labor of 35,000 men, using only black blasting powder and crude tools, to hew out the 110-mile narrow gauge line that originally stretched from Skagway, AK to Whitehorse, YT. WP&YR was named an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1994, joining the Statue of Liberty and the Panama Canal.
