Every nook and cranny of this stone fort tells a tale; built in 1830 by the Hudson’s Bay Company as a trading post, Canadian history was made here in 1871 when Treaty No. 1 was signed by the Federal Government and seven chiefs of the Ojibwe and Swampy Cree First Nations to create the foundation of modern Manitoba. The fort later became a penitentiary, then a psychiatric hospital and then a country club! Today the newly restored site is yours to discover.
