Begin your journey with the Place Fort La Tour video and then keep an eye out for Madame La Tour and Charles La Tour. They can’t wait to share their stories with you and will be happy to answer all your questions about life at the fort.

You may also see our blacksmith at work or one of the fort occupants making some bread!
