Towering safely above the high-water mark of Manitoba’s infamous Red River sits Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site, a place of roughhewn stone walls and sturdy historic buildings at the eastern edge of the vast Canadian prairies. Skilled costumed interpreters evoke the spirit of the past.
Explore this place of firsts where a young Western Canada began to take shape. Here, the first numbered treaty was signed with Treaty No. 1 First Nations. It is also the site of the first training centre for the North-West Mounted Police, Manitoba’s first prison and insane asylum, and the first commercial farm in Western Canada.

Start planning for your day trip! Lower Fort Garry offers a full restaurant, gift shop, interactive tours and workshops, facility rentals and English and French language services.
