Le logement du commandant de la P.C.N.O.

[English]
This handsome residence was built in 1902 for the commanding officer of the North West Mounted Police. It lent dignity, authority and a degree of permanence to the presence of law and order in Dawson City. While the police presence was permanent, the foundation of the building proved less so and was plagued with constant maintenance and repair problems. It was abandoned in 1945, in very poor shape. Restored by the Canadian Parks Service, the building now houses staff.

[French]
Cette ?l?gante ridence a ?t? construite en 1902 pour le commandant de la Police ? cheval du Nord-Ouest. Elle conf?rait de la dignit?, de l'autorit? et, dans une certaine mesure, un sens de permanence ? la prence des forces de l'ordre ? Dawson City. Leur prence fut bel et bien permanente, mais on ne peut en dire autant des fondations du btiment qui devaient continuellement ?tre r?par?es et entreteneues. La ridence a ?t? abandonn?e en 1945, en tr pi?tre ?tat. Restaur?e par le Service canadien des parcs, elle est maintenant occup?e par les membres du personnel.
