Pioneer Fox Farming (1880-1910) Monument

Commemorating the work of Robert T. Oulton and Charles Dalton, pioneers in breeding and raising silver and black foxes in captivity; and also, James Gordon and Robert Tuplin, who later assisted in perfecting the technique and in developing the industry. These men furnished a foundation stock for other ranches in North America, Europe and Asia. Their successes stimulated experiments in other types of fur-farming in Canada.
