The Forks National Historic Site
Downtown Winnipeg is alive with history. Nestled at the confluence of the Red River and Assiniboine River, is The Forks National Historic Site. This site has been a meeting place for more than 6,000 years, when the early Aboriginal peoples met to trade goods.
Archaeologists discovered the Aboriginal camps located at the site, between 1989 and 1994.
The site continued to be a meeting place for the first Europeans that arrived in 1738, in addition to buffalo hunters, Scottish settlers, immigrants and pioneers. While in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba make plans to visit The Forks for an afternoon of fun at the variety of shops, attractions and restaurants.
