August 25, 2016 is the 100th Birthday of the U.S. National Park Service. President Woodrow Wilson signed the NPS Organic Act on August 25, 1916 establishing the National Park Service as an agency under the U.S. Department of the Interior. Today, the National Park Service manages 412 units across the United States and its territories, including 59 national parks, national monuments, national historical sites, national lakeshores, national seashores, national battlefields, and more.

Fort Union Trading Post is located 24 miles north of Sidney, Montana and 25 miles southwest of Williston, North Dakota, via highway 1804. While here, visitors are encouraged to tour the reconstructed fort, trade room and bourgeois house. Fort Union is free of charge to visit. Stop in at the visitor’s center to get the latest updates, changes and upcoming events, or visit our website at http://www.nps.gov/fous or on Facebook.
