  • The Fort Heritage Precinct is best experienced through a tour with one of our guides who can show you all of the fantastic artifacts and tell you all of the amazing and awe-inspiring stories of life in Fort Saskatchewan. A tour of the entire site takes 1.5 hours. Shorter tours can be arranged based on your area of interest.

    You can experience history up close at the Fort Heritage Precinct through our three distinct areas. In chronological order we have: the North West Mounted Police Fort representing 1875 to 1885, the Historic Village representing 1902 to the late 1920’s, and the Warden’s Residence representing 1937.

    Enjoy the view as you walk through the picturesque historic village and North West Mounted Police (NWMP) Fort located on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River. Our site features eight heritage buildings in our Pioneer Village and four buildings in our 1875-1885 NWMP Fort that will arouse your curiosity and inspire you to learn more about our history.

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