Hope may be a quiet little community today, but during the Turnagain Arm Goldrush, in the late 1800s, Hope was home to miners, gamblers and thieves.
The Hope-Sunrise Historical and Mining Museum exhibits photographs and artifacts of the Turnagain Arm Gold Rush of 1896 and the years since. Displays include a road grader, dog sled, rock crusher, blacksmith bellows and postal boxes. In addition to the log museum building there is a mine bunkhouse and a blacksmith shop.
