The Town of the City of Dawson or Dawson City is a town in Yukon Territory. The current population is approximately 2,020. The area draws some 60,000 visitors each year. The locals generally refer to it simply as 'Dawson', but the tourist industry generally refers to it as 'Dawson City' (partly to differentiate it from Dawson Creek, British Columbia, which is at mile 0 of the Alaska Highway).
Many of the major buildings in town are part of Dawson National Historic Site. There are a number of displays in some of the old buildings, and national park service employees dress up like characters from the Klondike Gold Rush. Also in the Dawson area is Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site and S.S. Keno National Historic Site. Located in the Downtown Hotel is the famous Sourtœ Cocktail; a pickled human tœ plunged into the drink of your choice.
Dawson City is also home of the Berton House Writers Retreat program, housing established Canadian writers for four three-month get-away-from-it-all subsidized residencies each year. Berton House was the childhood home of popular-history writer Pierre Berton, and is across the street from the cabin that was home to pœt Robert Service, and just up the street from the cabin that housed writer Jack London during his time in the Yukon.
