Overview

Brand new exhibits and a reconstruction of the original Fort at Red Deer Crossing sets the stage to bring the early history of Red Deer to life. A heritage garden, poultry yard and teepees are set up for public enjoyment. Located west of Red Deer on the banks of the Red Deer River, Fort Normandeau sits at the site of the original Red Deer Crossing community. Before the railroad came to town, the Crossing was the best place to ford the river for miles around. Today through programs, hands-on activities, theatre and special events, the staff at the Fort Normandeau Interpretive Centre tell the stories of Red Deer’s three founding cultures: the Cree and Blackfoot people, the Metis Buffalo Hunters and the early Europeans who settled in the area. Open seasonally.
