    A new exhibit has opened up at the Fort St. John North Peace Museum that looks at the history of the fur trade in the North Peace area of British Columbia. Using historical images, personal stories, and archeological evidence, the exhibit tells the story of the fur trade from explorer Alexander Mackenzie, who was through the area in 1793, to the last Fort which was built in 1923. The exhibit includes stories and accounts from the history of the Hudson’s Bay Company. Visitors can learn more about the exhibit here and also check out the Fort St. John North Peace Museum’s website.
