About Fort William

Fort William Historical Park is the leading heritage and cultural attraction that brings people from across North America to our doors to experience northern hospitality, be entertained, and conduct business - just like we did two hundred years ago. This section will allow you to learn more about the Fort’s multi-faceted role and diverse facilities both in the past and in the present. By clicking on the Explore Fort William link you can familiarize yourself with our modern facilities and historic structures. Our History details the saga of how Fort William came to dominate the North American fur trade in the early nineteenth century and reveals the dramatic story of the Fort’s modern reconstruction.
