Cypress Hills Massacre National Historic Site is located about 2 km south of Fort Walsh National Historic Site in a broad valley bottom where American traders attacked a Nakoda camp. The rolling Prairies landscape is broken only by reconstructions of two former trading posts, Farwell’s and Solomon’s, involved in the massacre. The formal recognition refers to the associated landscape and archaeological remains surviving from the debacle on what is now Parks Canada’s property, although the actual site of the massacre extends beyond these boundaries.
