Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park is a living history site on 80 wooded acres along the Yellow River with authentic 1802 fur trade posts & an Indian Village. The Historical Park is located near Danbury, Wisconsin. The park includes two Fur Trade Posts; North West Company and the XY Company, reconstructed on the site known to be active from 1802 to 1805. The North West and XY trading posts and the Ojibwe Village constructed at Forts Folle Avoine are accurate depictions reflecting the close relationship that existed between the European fur traders and their Ojibwe trading partners who operated here between 1802 and 1805.

Visitors are educated and entertained as the period-dressed guide speaks about the life and culture of these early occupants.

Tours of the reconstructed Fur Trading Posts and the Ojibwe village are at 10 am, 11 am, noon, 1 pm and 2 pm. The walking tour, with period-dressed guides at the sites, is completed in about two hours.

Through September and early October, groups may schedule tours by appointment.
