Restored stockade at Grand Portage

Restored stockade at Grand Portage


The reconstructed stockade and Great Hall at Grand Portage, 1953. Both the stockade and Great Hall were rebuilt with greater historical accuracy in 1966 and 1974, respectively. At the time of this photo, the site had been named a National Historic Site by the Department of the Interior but had not yet been made a National Monument. Note how the interior of the stockade was used as a visitor parking lot.
