Fort Calgary
Fort Calgary

The heart of Calgary is red – the scarlet red of the North West Mounted Police (NWMP) tunic. When the NWMP built their fort at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers in 1875, they laid the foundation for the city we enjoy today. Discover the hopes and dreams of the Mounted Police and Calgary from 1875-1914 in a lively
Interpretive Centre located on 40 acres of parkland. Stroll across the Elbow River to the Deane House, the lovingly restored historic home of NWMP Captain Richard Deane, now operating as a restaurant.

The site is open year round and is located at 750 - 9th Avenue S.E. in Calgary.
