The Fur Trade Era

Tuesday, August 14, 2018

During Riverfest in 1988, local historian Mark Wagner donned a period costume and gave a presentation on the fur trade era up at the Julien Dubuque Monument. Cable TV staff recorded the event as night fell and early the next year turned it into a program. Our From the Archives version is a slightly abridged version of the 1989 original.
