200 years ago the North West Company and the XY Company built fur trade posts along the banks of the Yellow River. Today those fur trade companies are on center stage at Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park.
First discovered in a state archeological dig in 1969, the site is now on the National Register of Historic Sites. The fur trade site includes four reconstructed 1802-1804 trade houses on the site where they originally were located.
