Fort Pierre Chouteau Site

Fort Chouteau Road, Fort Pierre, SD 57532

Fort Pierre Chouteau stood as a symbol of the relations between Euro-Americans and American Indians and their interdependence for nearly 25 years (1832-1857). It was one of the most important fur trade forts of the western frontier. While no visible remains exist at the site today, there is a marker positioned at the end of gravel path just north of the city of Fort Pierre.
