More about this marker. The official Junction House marker is located on South Virginia Street about 300 feet north of East Peckham Lane near the main entrance to the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa.
The neighborhood, consisting of large buildings located in gigantic parking lots, does not inspire strolling, making the marker easy to overlook, even if you are visiting the casino or waiting for a bus across South Virginia Street from the marker.
A second marker, with the same wording, is located just inside the main entrance to the casino, mounted on the wall to the right
