Old jail at Laketon on the far side of Dease Lake.

John Murray recalls "The name of the community was Laketon. Laketon was at about 7 mile on the far side of the lake, just south of the mouth of Little Dease Creek. The jail had two (or three?) rows of carefully planted deciduous trees - kept those prisoners busy! There was also a small fenced enclosure not far from the front of the jail. It contained three graves of people who were hung for their crimes. (Apparently their crimes were so heinous they could not be buried in the nearby cemetery where everyone else was buried!) In the late 1950's Jack Johnson (who lived in the the old warehouse of the Kaska Fur Trading company - I believe that's the building that became Craigie Hood's cabin. I spent many a happy week-end in that cabin while Jack still owned it and he told me these unfortunates had been hung for stealing from sluiceboxes."
