Group Description

Step out of the modern visitor center into the recreated world of 1804, where you can stop at the Ojibwe encampment and learn how the seasonal living of the Ojibwe changed when Europeans arrived.

Walk with a costumed guide along outdoor trails to the reconstructed Wintering Post for the North West Company. While there, meet a fur trade clerk who explains the system of barter that moved beaver fur from the hands of Indian hunters onto the heads of fashionable Europeans.

Ater the tour, visit the demonstration area, where you can experience the hands-on activities of daily fur trade life.

The North West Company Fur Post offers 1.5 miles of trails through the woods and along the Snake River. The visitor center features a Great Room, fireplace, and museum store. New exhibits explore how the fur trade shaped the region. Picnic facilities are available.
