Take a Tour Through Time
Your journey through Fort Saskatchewan’s history begins at the 1937 Warden’s Residence. From there, our guides will usher you into the 1875 North West Mounted Police Fort, and then on to explore the early 1900s as you walk through the numerous authentic buildings of the Historical Village. They will show you fantastic artifacts and tell you stories of life in early Fort Saskatchewan.
