AAA Editor Notes
Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site, 5 km (3 mi.) s. on Hwy. 9, is purportedly the oldest intact stone fur-trading post in North America. Farm produce constituted the majority of trade that went on between the locals and the Hudson's Bay Co. The 19th-century buildings have been restored and are furnished as they might have been in their early days. Costumed staff members perform tasks and reenact events that re-create the early 1850s atmosphere of the fort in its heyday. Guests can engage in hands-on historic experiences such as candlestick making and bannock baking. In the 1870s the site served other purposes, including serving as a training base for the North-West Mounted Police.

The grounds contain an impressive collection of early stone buildings; an exhibit showcases the historic architectural styles. The Visitor Reception Centre offers exhibits about the fort's history. Special events are held occasionally throughout the season.

Guided tours are available. Pet friendly (call for restrictions/fees.). Picnicking is permitted. Food is available. Time: Allow 2 hours minimum.
