Overview Service & Activities
About Fort Union Trading Post was the most important fur trading post on the upper Missouri from 1828 to 1867. Assiniboine, Crow, Cree, Ojibway, Blackfeet, Hidatsa, and other tribes peacefully traded buffalo robes and other furs for trade goods such as beads, guns, blankets, knives, cookware, and cloth from American Fur Company traders. The site is located near the mouth of the Yellowstone and Missouri river, on the Montana-North Dakota Border. Open daily.
