The original structure of the Navarre-Anderson Trading Post is the oldest existing wooden building in the state of Michigan. The site houses the classic example of French-Canadian "piece-sur-piece" construction circa 1797 in the main building, plus an 1810 cookhouse and a replica 1790's French-Canadian style barn. The grounds are open year-round and host the annual Colonial Living History Weekend with Campeau Company, a Colonial civilian and military reenactment.
The battlefield at River Raisin was the site of a historic battle for Frenchtown, Michigan (Monroe's former name) during the War of 1812 and pitted the forces of the newly formed United States against the combined forces of Great Britain and local Native Americans. The British-Indian victory at the battle, which lasted from January 18-23 in 1813 had a definite impact on the Great Lakes Campaign as Frenchtown was overrun and led to invasions in the Ohio Frontier. Today, you can explore and re-live the battle at the Visitors Center, which hosts a variety of exhibits and artifacts.
The Martha Barker Country Store Museum is housed in the Papermill School Building which dates to 1860 and is now a replica of a common country store circa 1918.
