As one of the state's oldest settlements, this site hosts four simple limestone buildings from the era when the American Fur Company operated a regional trade with the Dakota, between 1825 and 1853. The home of Henry Hastings Sibley, the company's young regional manager, was begun in 1838. Sibley's office as first state governor is located in one ell of the home.
