Fort McMurray Heritage Village
1 Tolen Drive, 780-791-7575
Fort McMurray’s history is well-loved and explored by its residents. With novels like More than Oil - Trappers, Traders & Settlers, and This Place We Call Home available, historians have continued to present the past into the future through literature. And, if you want to transport yourself into history – beyond the well-written text, you can do this at Fort McMurray’s Heritage Village.
The Village highlights how Fort McMurray first established itself through the fur trade and oil sands development and takes you into some of the very first buildings that helped shape our city. Walk into Wop May’s home, see a trapper’s cabin first-hand or explore the Hill Family Home; there are over a dozen places to check out inside Heritage Village.
The plot of land located at 1 Tolen Drive is home to a collection of structures for guests to walk into life as it once was in these earlier beginnings – each with a different story and place on Fort McMurray’s historical timeline.
