Historic Fort Simpson – Northwest Territories, Canada – YouTube

Uploaded on Nov 13, 2009

Fort Simpson is the longest-standing continuous settlement on the Mackenzie River, in the Northwest Territories. Established as Fort of the Forks in 1903, it was renamed for Sir George Simpson when the Hudson’s Bay Company set up its fur-trading post in 1922.

The Fort Simpson McPherson House was built in 1936, and once housed the family of George and Lucy McPherson. The house was restored in 1999, and now stands as a cultural document. Join two of the Simpson children, as they explore their old home and share fond memories.
