Fort William Historical Park

The 20,000 sq ft Fort William Historic Park Visitor Centre is downstream to a historical recreation of the fur-trading centre of the North West Company. Resting on fieldstone piers above the flood level of the Kaministiquia River, the Centre fits within the boreal forest sited at the edge of a natural marsh. The building incorporates natural and man-made materials that create a unique visitor experience into Canada’s past. The 20,000 sf Centre accommodates interpretive and exhibit spaces, visitor's area, gift shop, restaurant, exterior patios, barbeque area, staff facilities and entertainment space.
