Overlooking the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers, Fort Calgary was completed in 1875. Unlike other forts that were used to keep invaders at bay, the primary job of Fort Calgary was to prevent the sale of alcohol to the local residents, by the Montana whiskey traders.

The completed fort was symbolic of a city being formed in the course of time and the exhibits inside the fort all voice and display the hopes and aspirations of the people, of how this upcoming city should be shaped up; the Interpretive Centre is where you’ll get most of your information from. Check out the Hunt House behind Deane House Restaurant.

The Fort Calgary, unlike most forts, had a very different purpose. It was built to keep in check the selling of alcohol to the people of Calgary in the late 19th century.
