Fort William Historical Park is one of the largest living history attractions in North America, devoted to re-creating the days of the North West Company and the Canadian fur trade. With 57 heritage and modern buildings on 250 acres, Fort William offers a vivid and rich tapestry of fur trade life, running the gamut from culture to crafts, medicine to business, domestic life to heritage farming.

Some of Canada's most renowned explorers were also connected to the NWC, including Simon Fraser, Sir Alexander Mackenzie and David Thompson, which is indicative of how the fur trade played a key role in forming the foundations of Canada. 

Aside from its comprehensive historical program, Fort William Historical Park is also a multi-functional operation, offering a variety of programs including overnight experiences, education programs, artisan workshops, conferences, banquets, festivals and recreational opportunities.
