It is important that the National Park Service not only protect sites for their natural resources, but also sites that provide opportunities to understand the various stories about notable people, events, and culture that shaped this country. The Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park was created in 1976, and has several unique units in Alaska and Washington states. The Seattle Unit of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park was established in 1979.
