Snake River Fur Post

Snake River Fur Post


The North West Company’s fur post on the Snake River. The historic site, administered by the Minnesota Historical Society, is a recreation of the trading post that operated here over in 1804 and 1805. The voyageurs who serviced it (and others in the St. Croix River basin), paddled and portaged a route from Lake Superior, up the Bois Brule River, down the Namekagon River, and into the St. Croix.
