The National Park Service and the Seattle Visitor Center, located at 319 Second Avenue South in Seattle, Washington, administers the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. The Seattle Unit of the park commemorates the city`s role as the most important staging area for the gold rush of the 1890s. After surviving a devastating fire and an economic depression, Seattle flourished with the Klondike Gold Rush. As a key port city, merchants supplied would-be Klondike Kings and Queens on their way to Alaska. This cemented Seattle as an anchor of the Pacific Northwest. Today the park is your gateway to learn about the gold rush, explore Seattle area parks, and be involved with the local community.
