Fur Trade reenactors- Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 am, 11:00am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm.

It is Fur Trade Weekend at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center June 12-13 when reenactors demonstrate what life was like for the average fur trader in North America. Now is the perfect time to experience our nation’s fur trade history.

Resident Fur Trade reenactors, Nic Skalicky and Russ Gilroy, will set up a camp outside the Trails Center complete with all the tools of the trade. Highlights include trapping demonstrations, beaver pelts, and the use of Native American sign language. Special demonstrations will take place Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 am, 11:00am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm.

“Our goal is to offer a better understanding of what drove men to come out to this wilderness. Men trying to make a fortune in a harsh environment,” said Nic Skalicky. “This weekend is an opportunity for you to have fun, learn something new, and eat some real mountain man grub (minus the weevils).”
