Fort Langley is located in the same place where a century and a half ago the largest American trading company, Hudson's Bay Company, built a small fur trading post with Indians and hunters. This post, constantly expanding, significantly influenced the development of this region. Over time, the small trading post turned into the center of the colony of British Columbia, whose territory is now part of Canada. Now Fort Langley is considered the birthplace of British Columbia.
Start your visit with the Visitor Center. There they will tell you more about the history of the fort and tell you about what you can see here. If you wish, you can watch a short film about the history of the fort. It hosts small exhibitions, a souvenir shop, and a beautiful view of the Fraser River.
The park is full of costumed actors who will be happy to answer your questions about the life of the XIX century. They live their own lives here, but nothing prevents you from watching them. For example, you can go to the Kuznetsk workshop and look at how iron was processed before.
Several times a year, special festivals are held at Fort Langley that will allow you to plunge even further into the distant era of local pioneers. You can check the time of such events on the official website.
