    Yukon

    by Basaic Written Mar 24, 2015

    Yukon is a small city of about 25,000 (up 19% since 2000) located along Interstate 40 and US Highway 270 in Canadian County in Central Oklahoma near Oklahoma City. Yukon was established in 1891 by A. N. Spencer and was named for the Yukon River and the Yukon Territory in Canada in honor of the gold rush there. Yukon has been designated the "Czech Capitol of Oklahoma" due to the large number of early settlers from that area. Famous people from Yukon include the founder of the Albertson's Grocery chain who was born here, actor Dale Robertson, and singer Garth Brooks who grew up here. The old Yukon Public Library shown here is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and now serves as the Chamber of Commerce.
