Costumed interpreters and Canada’s largest collection of original fur-trade buildings combine to allow visitors to immerse themselves in the past at Fort St. James. Established in 1806 as a fur trading post, Fort St. James functioned for a time as the capital of a vast region known as New Caledonia. The Visitor Reception Centre is filled with displays explaining the relationship between fur traders and the indigenous Carrier people while a documentary chronicles the site’s ambitious restoration. But the highlight is outside, wandering through the lakefront log buildings and interacting with the interpreters.
