A group of costumed interpreters role playing from the days of the 19th century at the Fort Walsh National Historic Site in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, Saskatchewan. These buildings were used by the members of the North West Mounted Police when Fort Walsh became the most important and heavily armed fort after it's establishment in 1875.
The fort remained alive for eight years and was closed in 1883 when the Canadian Pacific Railroad built their new line just to the north of Fort Walsh. The North West Mounted Police were relocated to Regina and in 1942, it was bought by the police and used as breeding ranch for horses. Now the reconstructed fort makes a great tourist attraction where visitors can step back in time to 1875.
