  The World Famous Sign Post Forest is Watson Lake’s best known attraction. So famous, it is known and mimicked around the world. The forest was started in 1942 by a homesick U.S. Army G.I., Carl K. Lindley of Danville, Il., Company D, 341st Engineers. While working on the Alaska Highway,
he erected a sign here pointing the way and stating the mileage to his hometown. Others followed his lead and are still doing so to this day. On July 20, 1990, Olen and Anita Walker of Bryan, Ohio placed the 10,000th sign. Carl K. Lindley and his wife visited the site in 1992, 50 years after his first post was erected. Today, the Town of Watson Lake maintains the site, erecting more posts as they are needed. The signpost forest is designated as an official Yukon Historic Site.
Located near the forest is the Alaska Highway Interpretive Centre. This is
often the first Yukon stop for northbound travellers. Besides providing information on the territory, the centre interprets the remarkable history of the highway through photo murals, realistic displays & dioramas, an audio-visual presentation on the history of Yukon, building of Alaska Highway & Yukon highways today.
