[English]
Built for Dr. Brown, a dentist, in 1902, this attractive little bungalow was tangible proof that affluent residents had confidence in the future of Dawson City and were willing to put down roots. While this may have been somewhat misplaced, the building’s future was assured. Considerably altered by subsequent owners, it functions today as housing for Canada Parks Service staff members.

[French]
Construit pour le dentiste John Brown en 1902, ce joli petit bungalow montre bien que certains résidents prospères croyaient en l’avenir de Dawson City et étaient prêts à s’y établir. Bien que cette confiance ait été plutôt mal placée, l’avenir de cette résidence était tout de même assuré. Considérablement modifiée par les propriétaires ultérieurs, elle sert maintenant de logis à des membres du personnel du Service canadien des parcs.
