A History of Rocky Mountain House

by Hugh A. Dempsey


The history of Rocky Mountain House, a fur-trading post on the North Saskatchewan River in Alberta, is given by the author, along with contemporary accounts of the fort's appearance. An attempt is made to identify by historical evidence the sites of the three forts called "Rocky Mountain House." Seven lists from 19th-century invoices and inventories show the kinds of goods shipped to the West for the Indian trade and other uses.
