An Alaskan Gold Rush Monument

The Pump House as you see it today was reconstructed in the spring of 1978. Our purpose was to attempt to recreate and 1890’s “Gold Rush” motif and atmosphere which was associated with the “Rip Roaring” but still Victorian era in Fairbanks. Everywhere you look you will see relics from the rich and illustrious past.

Turn of the Century Atmosphere

All the furnishings are authentic and very old. Most are genuine antiques and a few are over 150 years old. One of the pool tables is an original Brunswick “Union League” built in 1898 and shipped to Dawson City “The Klondike” in 1900. The table worked its way down the Yukon River following the “Rush”, stopping at Eagle, Circle and finally resting in Rampart in Ira Wisner·s Trading Post. The solid mahogany bar was built in Kansas City, then shipped and reassembled on-site by Mr. Lee Dunn.
