History

For thousands of years the Slavey Dene have occupied these lands.

A local man constructed a log warehouse in 1915 and used it as a trading post for many years. The Hudson Bay Company store opened in 1964-65, competing against the Fort Simpson Trading Post. The sawmill, owned by the Co-op, began operation in 1965.
