Fort Assiniboine, Alberta


The World's Largest Wagon Wheel adn Pick Axe reflects the rich cultural heritage of the Fort Assiniboine area. The hamlet was a major trade and supply point during the Hudson's Bay-era and was also an important location during the Klondike Gold Rush.

Located in Woodlands County, the icon stands next to the Fort Assiniboine Museum. The museum provides an insightful afternoon of discovery pertaining to the development of Western Canada.
