History:  

Established March 1, 1856, and organized in 1872, this county was named with reference to the extensive pineries of white and red (Norway) pine in various parts of this district, since much worked and practically all cut off by lumbermen. Perhaps also this name was adopted partly for the Pine Lakes and River, here tributary from the west to the Kettle River. Pine City, the county seat, received its name from that of the county and also from the adjacent Ojibwe village, Chengwatana.

Step out of the modern visitor center into the recreated world of 1804, where you can stop at the Ojibwe encampment and learn how the seasonal living of the Ojibwe changed when Europeans arrived.

Walk with a costumed guide along outdoor trails to the reconstructed Wintering Post for the North West Company. While there, meet a fur trade clerk who explains the system of barter that moved beaver fur from the hands of Indian hunters onto the heads of fashionable Europeans.

After the tour, visit the demonstration area, where you can experience the hands-on activities of daily fur trade life.
