Great Hall at Grand Portage

Great Hall at Grand Portage


The second reconstructed Great Hall at Grand Portage, ca. 1975. This structure was built after lightning struck the 1930s reconstruction, burning it to the ground. The gatehouse behind the Great Hall (at right) was erected in 1966 as part of the reconstruction of the 1930s stockade. Archaeological work undertaken in the 1960s and early 1970s helped builders create more historically accurate structures. Photograph by Robert C. Wheeler.
