History & History Related Items

Rampart history:

Rampart began in 1897 as a river supply point for the miners around the Yukon River. When word of a new strike appeared, thousands would throng to the area. Some say Rampart had a population of over 10,000 during the heyday. However, like most boom towns, the prosperity was shortlived. Gold strikes in other areas drew away the fortune seekers and by 1903 the town was basically left with a Native population and many abandoned buildings and homes. By 1917, the population had slightly increased. An agricultural experiment station was created here in 1900 and by 1920 was testing many types of growth in over 90 acres. It closed in 1925. The school closed in 1999 due to declining enrollment. The closure caused the population to decrease even more.
