Description:Take a trip through time and visit Fort George & Buckingham House Provincial Historic Site, the location of two competing fur trade posts. Wander through the gallery and let modern technology offer you a glimpse of the dreams of Louis, the voyageur. Listen as William Tomison, the Chief Factor of Buckingham House, reflects and writes in his journal. Step into the world of the Aboriginal people whose lives were so affected by the arrival of the fur traders. Meet the "Country Wife" and learn about the important role she played as the link between two cultures.
