Hwy 7 Box 51, Pine City Minnesota 55063
Visitors can explore the North West Company Fur Post and an Ojibwe wigwam with costumed guides. A fur trade clerk might explain the system of barter that moved beaver fur from the hands of Indian hunters onto the heads of fashionable Europeans. An Ojibwe woman may explain how her band's seasonal industries changed when Europeans arrived. From the early 1500s to roughly 1840, the North American fur trade brought American Indians and Euro-Americans together for the exchange of goods and furs. The post has been reconstructed on its original 1804 site.
