Kirkman Creek, on the Yukon River, Yukon Territory, Canada
 
A log cabin at Kirkman Creek, Yukon Territory, Canada, is this the same one that John Kirkman's 3 son's built?
Note: Kirkman Creek is an oais on the Yukon River, between White Horse and Dawson. It is one of the few places in the area, where a garden can be grown without the use of a greenhouse.
 
  François-Xavier Ladéroute came from the Gaspé region of Québec. In 1898, at the age of 70, he built an inn and established a farm on Kirkman Creek, a small tributary of the Yukon River upriver from Dawson City. He was one of the first people who grew vegetables successfully in the region and in 1905 was granted land for agricultural purposes. He finally left his rural life in the Yukon for Victoria, B.C., where he died at the age of 107.
