Description:
This tour is a self guided tour of the historic grounds. We offer tours through the largest group of original wooden buildings representing the fur trade in Canada. Your tour will start with a nine minute introductory film and a look through the display room. Then walk along Stuart Lake and step back into 1896. In each of our historic buildings there is a costumed interpreter that will guide you through life at Fort St. James from 1806-1952. This tour is easily adaptable to fit your time schedule. Our buildings include:

  • Fur Warehouse
  • Fish Cache (no interpreter)
  • Men’s House
  • Trade Store
  • Officer’s Dwelling House
  • Hide Tanning Shed
