Built by Alexander Hunter Murray of the Hudson's Bay
Company, at the mouth of Porcupine River in 1847. John Bell had
descended the Porcupine to its mouth in 1844. Although Fort Yukon was on
Russian territory, the Company maintained it until the sale of Alaska to
the United States, when they were summarily ejected, 1869. The Company
thereupon moved up the Porcupine to the Ramparts, where they built
Rampart House, then supposed to be on British territory, but proved to
be west of the boundary. The fort was moved twelve miles up the river,
and in 1890 was again moved to the eastward. =Index=: (Sir James Douglas era) Built by
Murray (not Bell) near mouth of Porcupine River, 125. =Bib.=: Murray,
