  • A really amazingly restored historical site giving you a glimpse of what a life was like back in the 1800's during the hey day of the Hudson Bay Company and the fur trade. Well worth the 40 min or so drive off the main highway from Vanderhoof.
  • Although small this is a wonderfully restored historical site. It tells the story on the trader colonization and the start of the exploitation of the first nations people. Been coming for years and did not know it was here.
  • A small historical site that gives you a sense of what a fort would be like during the colonization of western Canada. During the off-season, you can still walk around the buildings and take in the view of Stuart Lake.
  • Very interesting and knowledgeable staff and a look back in time to early days in the Central Interior of BC.
  • Very interesting..could not go inside buildings as not opened for tourist season..we walked around grounds..hopeful to go again but time it better.
