The gravesite of Mathilde "Ruby" Scott, the last woman to run a brothel in Dawson City, is located in the fourth row from the top, and the fourth plot from the road. Scott arrived from Paris, France in 1935 and took over a boarding house on Second Avenue. She ran Ruby's Place for almost three decades until a federal decision on prostitution forced her to close in 1961. While Scott's grave marker has not survived, the building which housed Ruby's Place still stands, next to Bonanza Market.
