Hougen Heritage Gallery

Somewhere Here

Opening reception: Friday, November 1, 5-7pm

Using displays of historic maps, Somewhere Here takes audiences on a journey through Yukon’s history. It describes how place names are rooted in the physical landscape as well as in past events and people. It highlights the names given to important geographical features by Yukon First Nations and how new names were introduced with the arrival of European settlers.

Presented by Friends of the Yukon Archives Society (FOYAS)

About Hougen Heritage Gallery

BIZhougen1The Hougen Heritage Gallery is a presentation space for heritage collections of photographs, including the Hougen family collection, and was inspired by Rolf Hougen's passion for Yukon heritage.
