Wood Mountain Post Provincial Park

Wood Mountain Post's proximity to the United States border determined its role in policing the northwest.  The North West Mounted Police (NWMP) detachment patrolled the border from 1874 to 1918, regulating whiskey traders, horse thieves and cattle rustlers.  The Post tells the story of Major James Walsh of the NWMP, and how he negotiated with Sioux Chief Sitting Bull who brought 5,000 followers into Saskatchewan after the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876. Today you can find two reconstructed buildings, interpretive panel, and a picnic area. Staff are on-site five days per week to give access to buildings and answer questions. Consult the website for hours and dates of operation.
