The Berton House Story

"It's a plain-looking little house that sits at the corner of Eighth Avenue and Hanson Street in Dawson City. It's painted white with green trim, and most people wouldn't give it a second glance -- except for the sign outside that reads 'Berton House'."
From "The Story of Berton House" - Ken Spotswood
