Inscription.
[English]
This fine two storey house, built in 1901, was owned by Henry C. Macaulay, Dawson City’s first mayor. Subsequently, it housed such affluent individuals as a merchant, a Territorial Commissioner, a surveyor, and senior management of the Yukon Consolidated Gold Corporation. It was a residence for those whose instructions, salaries and life-style came from outside.

[French]
Cette belle maison de deux étages, construite en 1901, a été la propriété de Henry C. Macaulay, premier maire de Dawson City. Par la suite, elle a été la foyer de gens prospères: un commerçant, un commissaire du Territoire, un arpenteur, et un membre de la haute direction de la Yukon Consolidated Gold Corporation. Il s’agissait d’une résidence pour des personnes dont l’éducation, la rémunération et la manière de vivre avaient été acquises à l’extérieur de la région.
