The present day fort at the Museum is a replica, built in 1970 by the maintenance crews from Canadian Forces Base Portage. Approximately 500 logs were cut and peeled to build the 90ft x 70ft x 11ft stockade and 18ft bastions. The original fort built by Sieur de la Verendrye was located two miles south of Poplar Point station in 1738.
