Opemican National Park, Quebec – July 2022 – Part Three, Obadjiwan–Fort Témiscamingue National Historic Site

Wow That’s a mouthful but in simple terms, it’s a Fort. But a very interesting fort and a great way to spend a few hours on a sunny day. I took this from their website to explain what it’s all about.

Located in Abitibi-Témiscamingue, the Obadjiwan–Fort-Témiscamingue national historic site witnessed the presence of Aboriginal people approximately 6,000 years ago and was the scene of commercial rivalries. This former fur trading post is at the heart of regional history and is well worth the detour.

This fort is set right on the water and has many realistic displays, trails to walk and a Visitor Centre. The displays are called scenographie and there are 12 on the circuit through the area. It shows you where the trappers came to sell their furs and the traders and merchants who then shipped them to Europe.

I do love Forts and history and enjoyed this place quite a lot. It’s well worth the visit if you are in the area.

See you soon…

      1. Yes, they were really life-like and the first one with the traders at the table gave you a good photo op with you in the background. It was a rough life I suppose, nothing like we can imagine with all our comforts today.
