Fort George
The Fort George trading post was established by the Northwest Company in 1807 at the confluence of the Nechako and Fraser Rivers. The fort was purchased by the Hudson's Bay Company in 1820 and became an important cultural bridge between First Nations people and the early settlers in the area.
