"Fort Calgary Historic Park" Fort Calgary Historic Park Tip by sunnywong

Fort Calgary Historic Park, Calgary: 8 reviews and 22 photos


Fort Calgary is where the settlement of Calgary began. Displays in the interpretive centre cover the life of Natives, early pioneers, and the North West Mounted Police, Canada's world-renowned Mounties, who arrived in 1875 to establish law and order. To do so, they built a fort at the crossing of two rivers. Across the Elbow River is the Deane House Historic site & Restaurant. During the summer, tour the re-constructed Fort (in progress).
