Established in 1806, it was the second of two fur trade posts west of the Rocky Mountains constructed by the North West Company under the supervision of Simon Fraser and became the centre of the northern fur trade district, known as New Caledonia.
It now displays the largest group of original wooden buildings representing the fur trade in Canada.
