Things to do

While You’re Here

From history tours and historic sites, Fort Frances and the surrounding area is a history buff’s playground! After you’ve satisfied your mind, delight your senses with shopping and souvenirs. Downtown Fort Frances and Market Thursdays offers something for everyone. Nurture the soul with a wide variety of meals available right here, at the ‘Vous’, check out the patio, a favourite amongst locals.

History Tours

Fort Frances Museum
Start your tour at the Museum and see the most recent exhibit, then make your way to Front Street and visit the Hallett and climb to the top of the Lookout Tower. Reward yourself with an ice cream at the Sorting Gap Marina.

The Lookout Tower
In 1972, James Wrench Towse had the tower moved from Atikokan and assembled at Point Park.

The bottom levels were enclosed and became the base of the museum’s collection during the summer. In 2009, the tower was moved to the Sorting Gap Marina.

The Logging Tug Hallett
The 60-foot, 57 ton Hallett was the largest, most powerful boat on Rainy Lake, until its retirement

in 1974. It traveled an average of 2000 miles a year and hauled 70-90,000 cords of wood.

In 2009, the boat was restored and moved to the Sorting Gap Marina.

Sorting Gap Marina
In 1902 a sawmill was established at the marina, and the Sorting Gap was used to sort logs for entry into the mill. The mill processed over 1 billion feet of lumber, employed 1500 people, and paid $12 million in wages.

The drepression, decline in the lumber market, and retreating timber stands contributed to the mill’s demise, and in 1942 the plant was moved.

Shopping & Souvenirs

Scott Street
Head to Scott Street in downtown Fort Frances and find maple syrup, wild rice, moccasins, First Nations crafts, clothing, and Canadian-themed gifts.

Fort Duty Free
Around the corner, Fort Frances Duty Free offers savings on perfumes, cosmetics, fine china, collectibles, beer, liquor, and tobacco.
