Nestled in the coulees, near the Oldman River, lies Fort Whoop-Up, the famous frontier trading post.

It all started in 1869, when American fur traders brought a wagon train of whiskey and other trade goods north. They established a stockade, later known as Fort Whoop Up, and made a ton of profit before the Mounties showed up to rein in the whiskey business.

Today, the fort still trades with the aboriginal Blackfoot tribes of Southern Alberta, supplying many ceremonial goods, hides, sweetgrass, and other items.

Step into life in a frontier outpost on the great plains, and see if you think “today is a good day to trade.”
