    Hands on History: Trappers, Trades, and Treaties

    Sutter's Fort visitors will step back in time to the 1840s to learn why trappers were considered “jacks of many trades,” and experience how they lived, worked, explored new territory, and traded with local Native Americans. In addition to learning about many fascinating aspects in the life of a trapper, Sutter's Fort visitors will have the hands-on opportunity to examine fur pelts, create documents with a quill pen and oak gall ink, and string trade beads.
