Furs in Storehouse at Fort Langley National Historic Site, Fort Langley

Image from Fort Langley National Historic Site activity in Things to do in Langley

Inside the Storehouse, visitors to Fort Langley National Historic Site can touch a wide variety of furs - one of the most valuable trade items in British Columbia.

The storehouse, built in the 1840s and renovated in the 1930s, is the only original building left on site (and is also the oldest building on Mainland British Columbia). Used as a warehouse for most of the Hudson's Bay Company time period, it has also served as a cooperage, a dwelling, and a barn. Today, visitors can see examples of supplies from the late 1800s and a large collection of furs (one of the most valuable resources of the new world).
