Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site

A major post along the Missouri River – and a rather peaceful one at that – Fort Union operated from 1828 to 1867 as the principal trading post of the American Fur Company.

Seven Native American tribes and European settlers converged here to trade everything from buffalo robes (over 25,000 annually) to blankets and beads.

Fort Union was literally dismantled shortly after the Civil War, by the U.S. Army constructing nearby Fort Buford, by steamboat crews passing by on the Missouri River needing the wood for their steam engines, and just by time.

Today it’s been rebuilt to its original appearance from its 1850s heyday near WillistonNorth Dakota. Original items like arrowheads unearthed by archeologists are on display.
