Sibley House Historic Site is at 1357 Sibley Memorial Hwy. (SR 13). Pioneer fur trader and one-time governor Henry H. Sibley built the house in 1838. It is one of the oldest stone houses in Minnesota. Faribault House, next door, was built in 1839 by Jean-Baptiste Faribault, another fur trader. Once part of the Sioux outfit of the American Fur Co., both houses have been restored and furnished in period. Guided 75-minute tours explore the area's contributions to the fur trade.
