Description

For 113 years, from 1805 to 1918, the small "finely situated" fur trade outpost of Fort Dunvegan was the focus of events in the Peace River region. Built by Archibald Norman McLeod, a famous Nor'Wester, Dunvegan, meaning fortress, was the centre of trade for the Beaver Indians. With the amalgamation of the North West and Hudson's Bay companies in 1821, the Fort continued in its dual role of trading furs and supplying meat to the Athabasca District. There was never a year when it did not make "at least a small profit."
