Recreation of the North West Company depot at Grand Portage

Description

A recreation of the North West Company depot at Grand Portage. Here, voyageurs from Montreal (known as “Montreal men”) and their comrades from the interior (known as “north men”) would meet for Rendezvous, the annual mid-summer company meeting and celebration. Directly behind this fort is the 8.5-mile Grand Portage. Photo by Jon Lurie, 2020.
