The Fort Heritage Precinct would like to thank the Edmonton and District Historical Society and the Phyllis Arnold Learning Fund for supporting the 2018/19 History Centre Programs! Thanks to these generous donors, each class that participates in one of our History Centre programs this year will receive an $80 rebate.

At the Fort Heritage Precinct, you can imagine yourself as a Constable climbing the stairs to the Fort’s bastion or as a student in the 1902 Castle School. You can picture yourself as a settler in 1905, explore the heart of early law and order in Fort Saskatchewan at the 1909 Courthouse, and see how the town doctor lived in the 1930s.

Plan to spend the entire day

Bring a lunch to enjoy at one of the museum’s picnic tables, explore Peter T. Ream Historic Park, or take a walk down the river valley trails. From June 3rd to September 4th, you may visit Fort Saskatchewan’s famous flock of sheep who roam throughout Peter T. Ream Historic Park, Thursdays through Sundays, 1:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

The Fort Heritage Precinct does not offer concession services, however there are many local eateries a few minutes walk away in downtown Fort Saskatchewan.

 Accessibility

Both the North West Mounted Police Fort and Warden’s Residence are wheelchair/walker accessible. The Historical Village is not wheelchair accessible, but can be managed by individuals with limited walking abilities who do not tire easily.

The Fort Heritage Precinct is an outdoor site so be sure to prepare for the weather and bring a pair of walking shoes in order to spend a couple of hours experiencing all that the site has to offer.

"The instructors are fantastic! Their knowledge of Canadian history is amazing. It was very motivating for the students to be able to ask questions that they wanted and have them answered."
