Whitehorse Civic Centre

The official opening of the Whitehorse Civic Centre built on property formerly used as a Radio Antenna site.  White Pass donated the large tract of land to the city provided it was used for recreational purposes.  The 1950 winter carnival raised $12, 000 toward the cost.   John Phelps and John Scott designed the arena.
