Next day we drove the Telegraph Road to the town of Telegraph Creek. It’s located on the Stikine River and was a major supply point during the Gold Rush. Now it is mostly abandoned, although a few Tahltan Native people still live in the area.
One of the fishing villages at the junction of Telegraph Creek and Stikine River
This is Main Street.
And this is the only business we found open in the entire lower town.
There is another section on a hill where most of the 300 town residents live. Located there is a gas station/grocery store, health center, school and community center.
