Alaska Highway HouseDawson Creek
The Alaska Highway House is situated near the Mile 0 Post in downtown Dawson Creek. It’s 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. You’ll learn 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, you’ll find stories and memorabilia, including many old photos. There’s an opportunity for you to record a video message for friends and family from the museum. You can also check out a model replica of the Kiskatinaw Bridge, the longest curved wooden bridge in North America. This is one of the newer tourist sites in Dawson Creek, so if you haven’t been through town in a while, stop in for a visit.
