Time Travel Back To The Days Of Trading In North Dakota At This Free Living History Weekend

North Dakota was a busy state during the height of the fur trade. Trading posts along the Missouri River thrived as traders went up and down the river to trap and sell their wares, especially up north. One of the biggest and busiest trading posts of that time was the Fort Union Trading Post, located near Williston, North Dakota and just on the border of Montana. You can travel back in time and visit the fort during its upcoming Living History Weekend, where it will come back to life with reenactments, demonstrations, and more.
