Jasper House (Rocky Mountain House, Henry’s House):

Metis Scrip Applications

First known as Rocky Mountain House, Jasper House was built circa 1813 by Francois Decoigne and Jasper Hawes of the North West Company. It was located near the mouth of Moose Creek on the northwest shore of a widening in the Athabasca River that was known as Brûlé Lake. When Jasper Hawes took command of the post in 1817 it became known as "Jasper's House" to avoid confusion with Rocky Mountain House on the Saskatchewan River. It functioned as a provision depot and way station for the voyageur brigades which crossed the mountains via the Athabasca and Yellowhead passes. One route carried the brigades through the mountains via the Whirlpool River and Athabasca Pass to the Columbia River, the other route carried them via the Miette River and Yellowhead Pass to the Fraser River at TêJaune Cache. It was also a wintering post for the Iroquois who had accompanied the North West Company west as hunters and trappers. In 1830, Michael Klyne moved the post a few miles upstream to the widening of the river called Jasper Lake. It remained there until it was abandoned in 1884.

1 Colin Fraser Sr.manned the second Jasper House for fifteen years from 1835 to 1850. Fraser, an engaging Scotsman, commanded the post with his Métis wife and nine children. In 1831, Colin married 18-year-old Nancy Gandry, daughter of Joseph Gandry and Lesette Châtelain who was a descendant of one of the earlier French traders Louis Châtelain. Colin, his wife and two-year-old daughter Betsy started their long residence in the Athabasca Valley. When Colin went to Jasper, the aging Jean Baptiste Berland was still there and had already given his name to what everyone then called Baptiste’s River, which is now called the Berland. “In Colin Fraser’s time, Eustace Decoigne, James Findlay, George Ward, Andre Chalifoux, and several Desjarlais lived in the (Jasper) valley. All of them had moved west, keeping pace with the extensions of the fur trade. The Desjarlias were close relatives to Antoine Desjarlais." (Quote from "Overland by the Yellowhead" by James MacGregor.)
