Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park.

Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park

This is a living history site, with two fur trade posts; North West Company and XY Company, reconstructed on the location known to be active from 1802 to 1805. An Ojibwe Village offers insight into Ojibwe life during the time of the fur trade.

Several museums, including a logging museum and one-room schoolhouse, showcase other aspects of Wisconsin and Burnett County history.

This place is mostly full of Native rusticity, but it does offer an indoor tree slab o' time. See the growth rings from when the Titanic sank and the Minnesota Twins won the World Series.
