    Aerial view of Dyea and Skagway, Alaska from across Chilkoot Inlet, ca. 1899

    Pillsbury, Arthur C. (Arthur Clarence); Pillsbury and Cleveland

    Dyea and Skagway served as the two main starting points for overland routes to the Klondike gold fields. Dyea was a short-lived town used by prospectors as an entrance to the Chilkoot Trail. It became less popular after a large avalanche blocked much of the trail on April 3, 1898 killing over 70 prospectors. Skagway served as the starting point for the White Pass Trail. In May 1898 White Pass & Yukon Route railroad route opened in Skagway, offering a faster, safer way for prospectors and their gear to reach the gold fields.
