The History Of The Woman River Chain
For the history buff, as far back as the late 1600s, Natives trapped furs on the Woman River and traded them for goods with the Hudson Bay Company. The oldest company in North America and still in business today. During the late 1920s, gold was discovered in numerous locations on the Woman River Chain. A number of mines went into production. A short distance from the outpost.
Freight and furs continuously traveled up and down the river chain, providing supplies to trappers, mines and lonely prospectors. Work in those days took place under harsh conditions and the hours were long. Well, along came a group of enterprising young women who saw an opportunity to offer “personal services” to travelers and prospectors in the area. They set up shop in our present day outpost. The outbuildings we use for storage were the girls’ working quarters. Of course fishing, hunting and enjoying the great outdoors is now the business of the day.
