In 1827, the brave adventurers of the Hudson’s Bay Company established a settlement in this spot, which became the birthplace of British Columbia. Today, it’s a living history museum that offers an intriguing glimpse into the past. Costumed characters demonstrate how to do old-timey things like blacksmithing and making barrels. Younger visitors can join the “Company of Adventurers,” and learn those skills, too. All visitors can pan for gold, climb the fort’s towers, listen to stories, enjoy a historic afternoon tea, and explore this site. Also worth exploring is nearby Fort Langley Village, where the main street, Glover Road, has great little antiques shops, a bookstore, and cafes, just a short stroll away.
