Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fort Pinancewaywining Monument (Thornhill Street, Morden)

Alexander Henry the Younger entered the service of the North West Company in 1792 as a fur trader. In 1802, he established Fort Pinancewaywining near present-day Morden. This post traded with local Cree, Sonnant, and Stone peoples, and was supplied with goods hauled by the first Red River Carts. After leaving southern Manitoba, Henry moved on to Fort Vermillion on the North Saskatchewan River in 1808, and to Fort George at the mouth of the Columbia River in 1813. He died at Fort George in 1814. This monument was erected by the Morden Historical Society on 1 July 1983.
