Keeping the Klondike Alive

As part of the on-going preservation efforts of the Klondike National Historic Sites, many important projects were accepted in 2014-2015. The S.S. Keno received a new skylight in August of 2014 after water damage was noted. The original panes were re-used.

Renovations to the Palace Grand starting August 2015 will put a halt to regularly programmed tours, but will ensure its structural integrity and enhance its capabilities as a performance venue.
