I brought signs from AZ and enjoyed seeing the thousands of signs already hung. Don't miss this great stop.

Be sure to take your own sign with you to put up. It is located right on the Alaska Hiway beside the Information Centre. Free WI-Fi at the info centre also free video, be sure to go inside they are very friendly and helpful.

Started by a homesick US guy back when building the highway - now over 70,000 signs. Take a while and enjoy!

Mainly screws and nails. People at the info centre are most helpful in assisting people include their sign.
