The Fur Trade at Lachine
National Historic Site

A group of young people are having a fun The Fur Trade at Lachine National Historic Site

Step into the vibrant fur trade era in the heart of Old Lachine. Pass through the doors of the 1803 stone warehouse and relive a vibrant page of history through the lives of voyageurs, the bourgeois and the Amerindians. Imagine bales of pelts, stacked crates of goods and barrels of provisions.

In the air there is the distinct smell of beaver pelts - the most coveted of the furs brought out of the wilderness.
