A trading post, an enchanted forest, a beach on the edge of a 110-km lake, a native presence dating back 6,000 years, and two centuries of rivalry to control the fur trade. This is Obadjiwan–Fort Témiscamingue National Historic Site!
One unique site surrounded by wilderness. Fort Témiscamingue was founded by the French in 1720. Its predecessor was a trading post built in 1679, some 20 kilometres downstream, at the confluence of the Métabetchouane and Montréal rivers. In 1795, the Fort became the property of North-West Company, which was subsequently acquired by Hudson's Bay Company in 1821. The latter operated the Fort right up until 1902. Witness of the indigenous presence for about six millennia and theater of commercial rivalries between fur traders for 200 years, this old trading post is at the heart of regional history.
