Igloo Info.

I was asked about the orgins about the Igloo, and here's the info. I found. It's a good story!

Had it ever opened, the Igloo City Resort at Mile 188.5 Parks Highway surely would have attracted travelers interested in an offbeat place to stay between Anchorage and Fairbanks. Imagine the appeal: Tourists could have returned home and bragged to friends that they had slept in a real Alaska igloo. After all, isn't traveling largely about seeking adventure and collecting interesting stories to tell?

Sadly, though, the non-ice igloo's owners ran out of money before the hotel was complete. Today the half-built white hulk sits abandoned next to the rest of the "resort" -- two small cabins, a wash house, a gas station and a convenience store. "It's just a landmark, aging not very gracefully," said Machel Hill, the resort's manager.

Perhaps this is the property you should buy...if there's no grass growing inside.
