Step back in time to the 1870s and discover what life was like on a working fort in the lawless time of rotgut whiskey runners. Imagine the scarlet serge-clad NWMP marching on parade, hear Métis legends handed down through generations and learn traditional crafts and skills. Uncover the history of Canada’s part in the aftermath of the Battle of Little Big Horn.

Parks Canada’s sites nearby

  • Grasslands National Park

    At Grasslands National Park, expanses of dinosaur fossils harken back to a time before history. Tipi rings are testament to First Nations communities, and ruins of prairie homesteads tell of settlers intent on taming the prairie.

  • Motherwell Homestead National Historic Site

    Hear prairie songbirds sing and smell the sweet hay as you help feed the horses. Re-connect with Canada’s homestead life and bake bread with flour ground from grain harvested from the golden fields outside.

  • Fort Battleford National Historic Site

    Step back into a turbulent time in Canada’s past, as life on the prairies changes forever for the First Nations and Métis as the newly-formed North West Mounted Police march into Fort Battleford.
