Gingras Trading Post State Historic Site [ND]
The Gingras Trading Post State Historic Site preserves the 1840s home and trading post of Métis legislator and businessman Antoine Blanc Gingras. Métis, meaning "mixed blood" or "mixed race," is a term used by people of combined Indian and European ancestry to describe themselves. Gingras's hand-hewn oak log store and home are among the few tangible remains of the fur trade in the Red River Valley. Both buildings on Gingras State Historic Site have been restored to their original appearance. Interpretive panels and exhibits about Gingras, Métis heritage, and the fur trade are located in the restored house.
The site offers exhibits.
