The Sibley Historic Site includes four limestone and brick buildings that are among the oldest still standing structures in Minnesota. They include the Sibley House, the Faribault House, the DuPuis House and a Cold Store. Today, the restored buildings help tell the history of the region's fur trade, Sibley's involvement in Minnesota business and politics, as well as his role in the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862.

Visitors can learn about the regions history through special programs and events. Visit the Minnesota Historical Society's calendar of events for upcoming activities at the Sibley Historic Site.
