Built in 1876, Fort Battleford was the first North West Mounted Police Post in Saskatchewan and served as such until 1924.
During the 1885 North West Riel Rebellion between Aboriginals and the Federal Government the Fort protected 500 settlers. A Mass grave site of eight Aboriginal prisoners hung during the rebellion is near the stockade of the Fort.
In 1948 it was designated as a Provincial Heritage Property; then designated as a Federal Heritage Property and a National Historic Site in 1951.
