Search Fort Langley British Columbia

In 1827 the Hudson's Bay Company built Fort Langley which served as a supply point for the interior posts, pioneered the export of salmon, introduced commercial farming and was active in fur trading. Located on the banks of the Fraser River, this settlement is known as the birthplace of British Columbia because in 1858 B.C. was proclaimed a colony in the fort's Big House. Just 40 minutes from Vancouver on Highway 1 (The Transcanada Highway), Fort Langley today boasts the restored Hudson's Bay trading post where furs are piled high at its store, and where visitors can watch a blacksmith work his forge. Other attractions include the B.C. Farm Machinery Museum, the Langley Centennial Museum and National Exhibition Centre, and charming antique shops.
