Grand Portage National Monument

The Grand Portage National Monument, near the US-Canada border in northern Minnesota, recreates a piece of the physical setting of the relations between the Anishinabe or Ojibwe people of Grand Portage and the North West Company of the North American fur trade. A depot for the exchange of furs for other goods has been reconstructed over its original footprint, with appealing live demos of aspects of the life in the depot.
