Description:
Fort de la Corne was built in 1753 by Louis de la Corne, Chevalier de la Corne at the same time that the second Fort Paskoya was built. It was built a little lower than the Saskatchewan River Forks at the mouth of the Pehonan Creek, a new establishment which originally bore the name of Fort des Prairies. Fort de la Corne has also been known at different dates as Fort St. Louis and Nippeween. This fort was the farthest west French outpost in North America.

The Hudson's Bay Company built its Fort-à-la-Corne a few miles from original fort in 1846. This fort became linked to the Carlton Trail by a side route called Fort à la Corne Trail in the Saskatchewan Valley.

Today the Fort à la Corne Provincial Forest surrounds the site of the old fur trade posts. Recently diamond exploration by De Beers and ShoreGold has been occurring in the area, and speculation exists that a mine will open in 2012.
