Fort Walsh was first established in 1875 when it was run by Inspector James Walsh, hence the name, and then becoming the headquarters for the North West Mounted Police in 1878 until 1883 when it was abandoned. It was later re-opened in 1942 as a ranch to breed and raises horses for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and in 1968, Parks Canada took ownership and deemed this a national historic site which has become a popular tourist attraction for visitors to Saskatchewan.
