Last Mountain House Provincial Historic Park is built on the site of a fur -trading post constructed in 1869. The post burned down in the early 1870s, and remained untouched for almost 100 years. The Regina Archaeological Society spent 5 summers at the site collecting artifacts and information about the post.
Now, several buildings on the site re-create and interpret life on the post: the Men’s House, the Master’s House, the Barn Warehouse (program centre), the Trade Store, the Ice House. One of the highlights at the post is a copy of a journal kept by the Master of the post, Isaac Cowie.
The park is open July 1st to Labour Day, Thursday through Sunday.
