DAVID THOMPSON THINGS

    



Come In and Visit an International Treasure

The History of Rocky Mountain House -Is a mixture of truth, legend, and tales where sometimes the truth far outstrips the legends. It is the story of Rocky Mountain House , of its great fur trade history, and of David Thompson, arguably the greatest geographer the world has ever known. The purpose of this website is to promote David Thompson and all things related to him including aboriginal impacts, new discoveries, life at the Rocky Mountain House forts , and Thompson's treks through the mountain passes. There is much history here. It is the sweeping story of the great North Saskatchewan River and the men and women who passed our way. David Thompson is one of Canada's great figures and his marriage to Charlotte Small for 57 years is one of our endearing love stories.

In 2007 Canada commemorated Thompson's trek through the Howse Pass . Enjoy the great North Saskatchewan River and the Confluence of the Clearwater River as I take you on a journey through time and to places that Thompson and his voyageurs traversed .Click on the links to explore, re-discover and relive  the fascinating world of David Thompsonand the fur trade. Come and visit the Play fort at the National Historic Site 5 miles from Rocky Mountain House. This is a live web and will be added to regularly.
