There's gold in them thar hills!
In July 1897 it was reported by the Portland in Seattle and Excelsior in San Fransisco that gold had been discovered in the Klondike.
The world was in the midst of an economic depression, so stampeders rushed to the Klondike seeking wealth.
Each prospector was required to bring a year's supplies of goods per person. Without the aid of pack animals and due to the roughness of the terrain it would take three or more months to summit Chilkoot Pass.
Packing and caching their supplies up to forty times, they covered up to 1,000 miles on the 33-mile trail.
This is the Chilkoot Trail:
- Finnegan's Point
- Canyon City
- Camp Pleasant
- Sheep Camp
- Chilkoot Pass or "Golden Staircase"
This ¾" thick wooden replica of the Klondike Gold Rush is handcrafted in the U.S. with colorful details. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday. A description is written on the back.
Look for Casper, our mascot black cat, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
We're a small workshop of 15 crew members in Wooster, Ohio who love our jobs of crafting replicas that hold deep meaning for you!
