Fort Langley National Historic Site
Fort Langley National Historic Site is located in a fertile valley along the Stó:lō or Fraser River, beneath the Golden Ears Mountain, within the village of Fort Langley and across the river from Kwantlen reservation no. 6.
First established downriver at Derby Reach in 1827 and relocated to its present site in 1840, Fort Langley was declared a National Historic Site in 1923. The fort’s original building, the Storehouse, was opened to the public in 1931. In 1958, the Big House, Servants’ Quarters, and Bastions were reconstructed to commemorate BC’s centennial. Additional buildings were added to the 8.4-hectare site to restore the look of the original Hudson’s Bay Company fort. Costumed interpreters, programs, artefacts, and exhibits invite visitors to ponder the site’s deep and varied history.
