Fort Fraser


Fort Fraser, a post of the North West Company built by Simon Fraser at the east end of Fraser lake, in what is now British Columbia, in 1806. In 1817 it was burned to the ground, but was afterwards rebuilt. It was taken over by the Hudson's Bay Company in 1821, and was in operation until about 1900.
