Last Mountain House was built in 1869 by the Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) as a winter outpost for its Fort Qu'Appelle operation. It was founded, in part, to compete with an increasing number of independent fur traders in the area and because the bison had begun to move south from the Touchwood Hills. At the time, the site's primary role was to supply provisions for the HBC's northern posts, but it was destroyed by fire in the early 1870s and was not rebuilt.

Today, the park offers guided tours of furnished rooms and displays in six reconstructed buildings of the post: the Master's House, the Men's House, the Ice Cellar, the Warehouse/Barn, a fur press and the privy. There is also a beautiful hiking trail through the coulee and down to the Last Mountain Lake.
