Fort Steele Heritage Town

Fort Steele, during the 1864 Kootenay gold rush was called Galbraith’s Ferry, but twenty-four years later it was renamed in honor of Sam Steele of the Northwest Mounted Police, who had become a hero by peacefully settling tensions between white settlers and the local Ktunaxa people.

    We visited Fort Steele on Canada day 2008 and found it a great place. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. probably i most enjoyed my trip on the footplate of the engine driven by Deborah. We loved Canada and its people. We come from Te puke New Zealand. ~
