Sibley House Historic Site

Explore Minnesota first official historic site!
In the early 1800s Mendota was a major center of the region's fur trade. Some of Minnesota's oldest buildings stand here, including the home of Henry Hastings Sibley, fur trader, general, and first governor of Minnesota. The restored buildings help tell the history of the region's fur trade, Sibley's involvement in  business and politics (Sibley's governor's office is located here), as well as his role in the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862.

Preservation efforts and educational programs at the site are generously supported by the Friends of the Sibley Historic Site.

Help preserve our past by supporting the Sibley House Endowment Fund.
