We've changed our name!
Our site experience is much broader than just the history of the North West Company — we tell the wider history of Native Americans, French voyageurs, and British fur traders in the early 19th century on the Ginebig-ziibi (Snake River).

What to see and do
Interactive exhibits paint the picture of life at the fur post, the global economy of the fur trade, the relationships between the fur traders and the Ojibwe, and archaeology of the site.

Explore 1.5 miles of heritage trails dotted with interpretive markers along the way. Enjoy the scenic views while you step in history’s footprints. Open all year for hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing.
