Would your guests enjoy a chance to paddle an authentic looking fur trade canoe, touch-and-feel actual furs and trade goods or hear a presentation about our region’s exciting fur trade history?
La Compagnie des Hivernants de la Rivìere Saint Pierre (the Company of the Winterers of the Saint Peter’s River) may just be the group you have been searching for!
Also known simply as La Compagnie, we are an assorted group of fur trade enthusiasts. Our members are educators, professional historians, archivists, retired teachers, artists and recreational canoeists. By appearing in period-appropriate clothing with our canoes, furs and trade goods at historic sites, celebrations, festivals and private events, we recreate, demonstrate and portray the lives and times of the fur trade era in the Upper Midwest.
