Here is the cabin as it was found on his deeded site. Eventually, it was then brought to Dawson City for display and a museum was also opened.
Here’s a recipe for Bannock for you. Maybe if you add some sugar? Fruit compote? Honey? Anything.
Here’s an applicationo for a placer mine on the Henderson Creek, where his cabin was found. His signature is in the lower right.
Then we tried to visit the Dawson City Museum but the tickets were $7.00 for one day. It was 4:15 and the museum closed at 6:00. We’ll go tomorrow and thought we’d just wander through Dawson City this afternoon. By chance our walk took us by a corner building with an open door. Let’s go in. Inside were lots of pictures about the early days of Dawson City. What a find. Pictures along with quotes from people who lived there during the gold rush. Very nicely done . And, here are some of the pictures that I got. I’ll let you read the quotes yourself.
The Klondike Gold Rush started when these 3 men found some gold in the area.
Here are some miners at dinner. Fine dining it wasn’t.
These streets are definitely not paved with gold.
The order was kept by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Dawson City was quite tame compared to other towns.
However, as Dawson City grew and business men with families came up, the town attained a more civilized look.
But it’s getting late, the rain has stopped for a bit and we can get home, maybe, without getting wet.
