Just north of Winnipeg, on the banks of the Red River, sits a bastion of history. From hosting the signing of the first of the Numbered Treaties to serving as a Hudson’s Bay Company stronghold and much more, Lower Fort Garry has had a varied and fascinating history.

Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site is on Treaty No. 1 territory: the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and the homeland of the Red River Métis.
