So where are the fort, falls?

The Fort Frances Museum continues connecting with community with this week’s heritage tour—exploring the west end of the town to discover where the fort and falls are.
As part of moving beyond its walls, the Fort Frances Museum is presenting a summer of heritage tours and activities throughout the town as we connect with the community.
Join us on Thursdays from 2:30-4 p.m. or 6-7:30 p.m. to discover more about Fort Frances and the area’s heritage.
Tomorrow (July 20), we will meet at the Legion Park picnic shelter to discover heritage plaques, unique vistas, and where the XY Company, Astor’s American Fur Company, the Northwest Company, and the Hudson Bay Company put the “fort” in Fort Frances.
Through diaries and photos, we will imagine where the falls once called the Alberton, Couchiching, Koochiching, or Chaudiere were, and how they led to the development of the border communities.
You can make your own diary or paint your own scene to add to the record of the area where forts and falls dominated the landscape.
The Fort Frances Museum currently is relocated to 334 Scott St. as renovations are completed at the main site in Phase One of the Heritage Tourism Project.
The museum’s temporary location is open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. We invite you to drop in to pick up your “Discover Fort Frances” package.
