In 1990, the S.S. Tutshi was almost completely destroyed by a fire. The remains have been preserved as a memorial site.
The British Navigation Company was established in 1900 and used steam-powered paddle wheelers to provide transportation between communities on the Yukon river system. Carcross was the entry point for most travellers and the hub for the Southern Lakes area. In 1917, the company launched The S.S. Tutshi – a luxury tourist boat for the region. It had its heyday during the 1920s, but by the late 1950s it was dry docked and eventually purchased by the Yukon government to be restored as an interpretive site. In 1990, the S.S. Tutshi was almost completely destroyed by a fire. The remains have been preserved as a memorial site.
