Heritage buildings (Picture BC photo)
Originally founded in 1827 as a Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) trading post on the shore of the Fraser River, Fort Langley preserves its historic and heritage sites nearly 200 years later.
The most notable one is Fort Langley National Historic Site, the official birthplace of British Columbia, where history comes alive.
Fort Langley National Historic Site
Enclosed in a dramatic riverside stockade, the current incarnation of Fort Langley National Historic Site (23433 Mavis Ave) dates to 1840. The fur trading post was rebuilt after an 1839 fire, and now features a striking combination of reconstructed and original buildings.
At its peak, Fort Langley sold produce to Russians in Alaska, shipped cranberries to California, and generated 2,000 barrels of canned salmon a year, much of which was exported to Hawaii. Touch soft beaver and black bear pelts, watch barrel-making and blacksmithing demonstrations and chat with interpreters in period costumes.
