During the gold rush days, the town of Grand Forks, also known as Bonanza, was the second-largest town in the Yukon. Dawson City, of course, was bigger.

It was located at the junction of Bonanza and Eldorado Creeks, where millions of dollars in gold were mined.

A lot of the Klondike gold kings lived and mined there.

Belinda Mulrooney built one of the first businesses there, called the Grand Forks Hotel.
