Step into a reconstructed fur post from the winter of 1804. Meet a French voyageur, a British fur trade clerk and visit an Ojibwe encampment. The visitor center houses an expansive exhibit gallery with a 24-foot birch canoe, a 30-foot tall stone fireplace and a gift shop. The Snake River heritage trails are open year round for hiking, snowshoeing and skiing.
It’s the War of 1812 and the North West Company is enlisting all able bodied voyageurs to help defend the business of the fur trade. Join in musket drills, march in formation and make a militia hat to show your support.
