Mission Statement

Grand Portage National Monument protects, commemorates, and interprets a reconstructed fur depot of the North West Company, a rendezvous site for international commerce and canoe route for transcontinental exploration, Native heritage, natural scene, and history of cross cultural contact and accommodation between traders, Ojibwe, and other participants in the fur trade.

Description

Travel into the past to discover the present. Explore the history of Ojibwe people and the North West Company of the North American fur trade. Follow pathways into a distant time. Take in the sights and smells of a bustling depot reconstructed over its original footprint. Listen for the echo of the drum over Grand Portage Bay.
