The Creepy Small Town In Alaska With Insane Paranormal Activity

Skagway is on the corner of the Alaska Panhandle, a great place to leave the sea and head inland. This town was the largest in Alaska in 1898, as it is the American access point to the gold fields of the Klondike Gold Rush. People arrived in droves and then had to live together in the brutal, wild west conditions since supplying and maintaining order in town proved challenging. Most prospectors headed out to the Klondike, while some remained in Skagway and lived out their days. Many sightings of ghostly apparitions in 1890’s fashion have been reported in the historic buildings. Visit Skagway to see how life was in an older time, explore the historic buildings, and perhaps even experience a paranormal event.
