Step back in time and experience the fur trade of 1802! History comes to life at Forts Folle Avoine, where bartering between fur traders and the Ojibwe Indians is portrayed as it actually happened almost 200 years ago! Period-dressed guides conduct walking tours of the reconstructed Fur Trading Posts and the Ojibwe village.  This is the only known site in North America where two competing fur trade companies established side-by-side fur trade posts.
