Visitors to the Navarre-Anderson Trading Post on North Custer Road in Monroe last weekend had the opportunity to learn about life as a fur trader in the area in the 1790s. John Gibney, director of the Monroe County Historical Museum, explains the workings of a flintlock musket to Cameron Craig, 10, of Monroe.
