An Explorer's Guide to the Alaska Highway
Km 1296.2 (Historic Mile 836): Johnson's Crossing Lodge was one of the first lodges on the highway, opening in about 1948. The original building was demolished in the mid-1990s, but although it was closed for a few years, as of 2014 it's serving travellers again. Ellen Davignon grew up in the old lodge, which was built by her father - she tells that story in her wonderful book The Cinnamon Mine: An Alaska Highway Childhood.
