MacBride Museum of Yukon History

In 1950, a group of far-sighted Yukoners dedicated to the preservation of heritage started the Yukon Historical Society, the first organization of its kind in the Territory. Co-founder William MacBride was an employee of the White Pass & Yukon Route Company, and was able to salvage outdated transportation equipment for posterity.

The Yukon Historical Society soon acquired the unoccupied Government Telegraph Office, built in 1900 and still located on its original site. In the 1960s this building housed the growing collection, and was open to the public as a museum during the summer. Volunteers were responsible for all the activities of the YHS and later the MacBride Museum Society until the mid-1980s when the first curator/director was hired.

Intro to Archives:

MacBride Museum holds a collection of nearly 30,000 artifacts, documents, and photographs. The museum collects items that are of historical significance to Yukon and Yukoners.

To design and implement a management plan for documentation and restoration of heritage sites and Tlingit artefacts. The assessment and planning of heritage sites across the traditional territory will help focus immediate, medium and long-term priorities for action, and will play a key role in leveraging financial resources.
