Whitehorse, Yukon’s capital city

Mile 887.4 (km 1425.5) – Historic MP 918
Population: 27,000

Whitehorse was established in 1898. Since its beginning, the city has been a heavily-used transportation hub, first with the White Pass & Yukon Route railway, then the river stern-wheelers plying the Yukon River.

During highway construction in the 1940s, Whitehorse was HQ for the northwestern portion of the Alaska Highway and home to thousands of American military and civilian workers. When the highway opened to civilian travel, Whitehorse continued to thrive.

Whitehorse replaced Dawson City as capital of Yukon in 1953, and is now the largest community on the highway. There are many excursions and amenities available, including a Walmart.
