Last Mountain House
Last Mountain House (1869-1871) - A Hudson's Bay Company post first established in 1869 near present day Craven, Saskatchewan. Abandoned in 1871.
History of Last Mountain House
The post experienced a successful first season but the rapid decline of the buffalo herds and local conflicts made succeeding years difficult and by 1871 the post was abandoned. Last Mountain House was burned down and not rebuilt.
Part of Last Mountain House Provincial Park. Three post buildings (master's house, trade store and men's barracks) reconstructed on their original sites and outfitted with period furnishings. Also reconstructed are the ice cellar and a fur press. Located near Craven, Saskatchewan.
