About the Historic Fort Willow Conservation Area
The Fort Willow area was actively used for centuries by First Nations, the fur trade and French explorers as part of a major transportation route known as the Nine Mile Portage. It was also strategically located as a supply depot during the War of 1812. Restorations and archaeological investigations have located and outlined the former buildings used by the soldiers. Owing to their importance in the development of our nation, Fort Willow and the Nine Mile Portage are recognized as both provincial and national historic sites.
