Fort Livingstone National Historic Site of Canada

View of Fort Livingstone National Historic Site
Explore the site of what was once the first capital of the North West Territories and the inaugural headquarters of the North West Mounted Police (NWMP). Tread carefully on the rocky ground, avoiding the red-sided garter snakes which thrive on this barren land and imagine the desolation felt by the first troops of the NWMP as they marched here under Commander French to bring Canadian law to the prairies.
