Fur Trade Encampment & Symposium

When: June 12-13 2015

This weekend, get a glimpse of what one of the Inland Northwest’s earliest settlement periods — from around 1810 to 1826 — was like during the Friends of the Spokane House’s annual living history encampment. Saturday’s Fur Trade Symposium features talks about the Spokane Tribe’s history, what life was like for the women of the fur trade and the history of the Spokane House. It’s also a “free day” for state park access, so you don’t need a Discover Pass to enter (however, you do need one on Sunday). Local history reenactors also set up historically accurate camps like those used by the natives, trappers, traders and other European settlers who were some of the first to explore this place we call home.

Sat, June 13 and Sun, June 14, from 10 am-4 pm • Free • Riverside State Park, Spokane House Inte
