Nestled between the banks of the North Saskatchewan River and Fort Saskatchewan’s downtown core is the Fort Heritage Precinct. The Precinct celebrates three distinct time-periods: the City’s earliest history is represented by the 1875 North West Mounted Police (NWMP) Fort, while the historical village and 1905 Canadian Northern Railway Station capture the experiences of the earliest settlers. The 1937 Warden’s Residence showcases Alberta’s Provincial Gaol (jail) history and serves as the Precinct’s Visitor Information Centre.

Throughout the year, The Fort Heritage Precinct is accessible through guided tours. As you take a tour through the NWMP Fort, you will be whisked back in time to imagine yourself as a constable climbing the bastion to view the surrounding landscape. After exploring the Fort, hop forward in time to the historical village, where you can imagine yourself as a student in the 1902 Castle School, visualize life as a settler in the early 20th century, and see how the town doctor lived in the 1920s. You can also explore Fort Saskatchewan’s history of law and order at the 1909 Courthouse.

The Fort Heritage Precinct is also a great outdoor recreation area where you can feed the City’s flock of sheep, toboggan down the river valley hills, skate under the winter lights at Legacy Park, and enjoy the beautiful trails year round. The museum does not offer food services, however, restaurants are within walking distance.
