Fort Battleford National Historic Site commemorates the role of the North West Mounted Police from 1876 to 1885 in extending the Canadian government’s interests in the west, and the role of Fort Battleford during the conflict of 1885. Established in 1876 by the North West Mounted Police, Fort Battleford became the refuge for 500 settlers during the North West Resistance of 1885 when many settlers feared an attack from Chief Poundmaker’s Cree.
