Atlin

Atlin, British Columbia, Canada

Globe Theatre with town dog

It's just across the border from the Yukon and just across the lake from Alaska:
Atlin, the most northwesterly town in British Columbia.
There's still some professional gold mining and recreational gold panning going on in the ara.
During the 1898 stampede more than 10.000 people rushed throught Atlin within a year.
The Atlin Historical Society runs an interesting little museum in the original one-room
schoolhouse in town, with great photo exhibits of the Atlin gold rush.

On the shore of Lake Atlin sits the lake boat M.V. Tarahne, built in 1916, which once connected
Atlin to Scotia Bay, across the lake, where supplies from Carcross arrived till 1936.
Today the Tarahne offers a 'murder mystery dinner theatre' for visitors in Summer.
