Fort Edmonton

Just when it started to turn properly to fall, the helpmeet and I visited a local Edmonton attraction that’s probably in my top five of places to visit in the city: Fort Edmonton Park. The central feature of the park is the c. 1795 Hudson’s Bay Company fur trading fort but the park sprawl also includes original buildings and reconstructions from the 1800s all the way up to the 1940s. It’s basically a big living history park…so, obviously up my alley. My favourite part is the historic fort (1795 is bit out of my area of expertise – which is  1450-1750, although my real core knowledge is 1500-1625). Sometimes I need a good history rush!

I am a history seeker buff so I gotta check this out instead of going up to Massachusetts and Connecticut. LOL.
