Lac Qui Parle Mission

What is there to do?

A mission and fur post overlooked the Minnesota River 150 years ago and today the mission still stands. Joseph Renville, an explorer and fur trader whose mother was Dakota and father was French, established a fur post on the river in 1826 near a wide portion called Lac qui Parle. He invited missionaries to the area. After his death in 1846, Dakota opposition to the mission forced the missionaries out. Managed by Chippewa County Historical Society. - Fun things to do with kids and best places to visit in the US
