The Alaska Highway House

The Alaska Highway House is an attraction in Dawson Creek and is situated near the Mile 0 Post in downtown Dawson Creek. It is a museum commemorating the building of the Alaska Highway, and a tribute to the 30,000 Americans and Canadians that took part in its construction. The two RV Gypsies went inside and learned how this 2,288 km road was built in just 9 months, and how it impacted the communities along its route.

Inside the Highway House, the two RV gypsies found stories and memorabilia, including many old photos. They also checked out a model replica of the Kiskatinaw Bridge, the longest curved wooden bridge in North America, then they got in their car and drove to the bridge.

Below: As Karen Duquette climbed into the jeep, the driver looked at her and said, "Just who are you and why are you in my jeep?" (Note: the window of the jeep was so dirty that the driver could barely be seen in the second photo shown below). Karen merely said, "No worries, just drive this thing."
