Telegraph Creek has been continuously settled by non-native peoples since placer gold was found a few kilometres downstream in 1861. As the farthest navigable point on the Stikine for steamships, the community was well situated for such enterprises as Western Union’s overland telegraph to link New York and Paris.

Telegraph Creek has been continuously settled by non-native peoples since placer gold was found a few kilometres downstream in 1861. As the farthest navigable point on the Stikine for steamships, the community was well situated for such enterprises as Western Union’s overland telegraph to link New York and Paris. Telegraph Creek might have been the Northwest’s great communications centre by 1866 if the transatlantic cable, completed the same year, had not made the overland line redundant. Less than a decade later, Telegraph Creek was rejuvenated as a gateway to the Cassiar gold rush and in 1897, gateway to the Klondike. In 1901 another telegraph line, linking Klondike with the south, was strung into Telegraph Creek, but brought few changes to the village. Benefits came after 1928 with improvements to the road east to Dease Lake and during World War II, with the construction of the Alaska Highway. More recently, the community has been simply a refuge for people who prefer fewer links with the world beyond. Another mini-boom is looming, though, and it’s because of gold again. Mining companies are moving in, 100 kilometres south, between the Scud and Iskut rivers.
