This was the first bank to operate in Dawson, starting business in a tent in 1897. Today, the only bank in Dawson is a CIBC, across the street on 2nd avenue.

This warehouse was used to store goods that would be distributed to Dawsonites during the months the city was cut off from the outside world.
