  • Fort St James Historical Site is located 50 km from the Yellowhead Hwy but is well worth a visit. It is a small historic site where some restored buildings in the life of the trappers and traders of the 19th century. Everything looks beautiful and authentic and in each building is someone available for an interesting explanation. On a 2 hours one is around and one can also spot eat something. A real winner.

  • 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.
  • The site is interesting; the interpretive staff do a great job; the "chicken races" are hilarious — but the best part was being able to stay overnight in the factor's house and have the whole place to ourselves.
  • Knowledgable interpretive actors give everyone a taste of what history looked like back in the day when fur was the king of the economy.
  • I didn't really enjoy myself here
  • Very interesting and educational. Keeping our history alive.
