    Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park - Gold! is what the headlines read in 1897,
         starting the Klondike Gold Rush. Thousands, hoping to ease the woes of economic
         depression, sold farms, dropped businesses and boarded ships to follow their
         dreams north. Today Klondike Gold Rush NHP commemorates the bravery of the
         stampeders who voyaged north by protecting the trails, historic boomtowns and
         buildings of the Klondike Gold Rush era.
    Sitka National Historic Park - Alaska's oldest federally designated park.
