Long Description:
This was about 4 miles down stream. Loisel was called Little Beaver by the indians. This was part of Louisiana, receded by Spain to France in 1800 and ceded by France to the US in 1803. On September 22, 1804 Lewis & Clark stopped at this post and described it. "Log palisade 13 1/2 feet high with sentry boxes at the corners 65X75 in size. Four room house within, one room for storage, one for trade, a common hall and a family house". Trade went on until 1810 when it burnt down, then the property of the St. Louis Missouri Fur Company.
