|Facility:||Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site of Canada|
|Description:||Over 200 years ago the North West and Hudson's Bay companies set up rival posts at the end of the fur trade line on the North Saskatchewan River. Competition for trade was fierce. During 76 years of operation, nine different Aboriginal groups came here to trade. Explorer, fur trader and mapmaker, David Thompson used Rocky Mountain House as a base for finding a pass across the Rocky Mountains.
Today, Parks Canada tells the stories and protects the sites of four trading posts. Explore the fort sites and talk with the interpreters to imagine what life was like here so many years ago.
