The Yukon Territory is dated with thousands of years of history dating to before the last Ice Age that shaped a unique piece of the territory’s history. The believed Beringia Land Bridge that joined Asia and North America allowed for now extinct large animals to travel to North America as well new settlers which would be Yukon’s first people to settle and develop the lands. The people of the Yukon have lived of the rich lands for thousands of years from trading furs with European and Asian explorers and the well known Klondike Gold Rush that brought both fame and fortune to the territory.
When The Second World War broke out developing a roadway to reach around the vital pieces of the territory became a necessity and the Alaska Highway was built. The Alaska Highway was North America’s ‘last frontier’ that was built in 1942 to transport war supplies. This highway changed the way the Yukon would function by replacing boats and trains as a more efficient form of transportation, Whitehorse became the hub of the highway and grew to be Yukon’s largest town and eventually the Capital City.
Today, Yukon has a perfect balance of remembering and sharing their long history with both locals and visitors alike while living in modern conveniences amongst their rugged beautify of untouched nature.
