Downtown

The heart of Fort McMurray, the downtown area offers a wealth of history, including the arrival of Peter Pond and the fur trade. Today, the downtown area includes City Hall, parks, the Northern Lights Regional Health Centre, MacDonald Island Park, Keyano College, three schools and many services, businesses, entertainment and single family and higher density housing.  Tucked away in quiet corners of downtown are some of Fort McMurray's first neighbourhoods. Charming older bungalows situated on large lots, river valley views, modern condos and quick access to services and amenities keep the downtown a desirable area to live.

Schools:
Dr. K A Clark (K-6)
Father Turcotte (K-6)
Composite High School (7-12)

European Settlement

In his exploration of Western Canada, fur trader Peter Pond stopped at the confluence of the Athabasca and Clearwater Rivers in 1778 — the future site of Fort McMurray. From that point forward, there is evidence that Europeans (primarily the North West Company) had a series of minor trading posts at the site starting around 1786. However, it wasn’t until 1870 when H.J. Moberly, of the Hudson’s Bay Company, established a major post at Fort McMurray, naming it after HBC factor, William McMurray. More than a fur-trading post, the fort was meant as a terminal for a proposed steamboat route moving furs to Edmonton along the Athabasca River. In 1883, the S.S. Grahame, the first vessel to travel the route, made her maiden voyage.2
