Fort Whoop-up

Fort Whoop-up Interpretive Centre

The fort was originally known as Fort Hamilton. Built by Americans in 1869, it was originally established as a furtrading base. It was one of the earliest and most notorious of the "whiskey forts," dealing in contraband liquor and firearms. It soon earned the name of Fort Whoop-Up. Follow interpretive guides as they lead you through the tumultuous past and use state of the art interactive displays to see what life was like in the real Wild West.
