Native peoples and traders met at a trading post constructed across the Rum River from The Point in 1844 by Joseph Bellanger. The Ojibwa brought furs and skins to trade for copper cooking pots, cloth, blankets, decorative beads and iron tools.

The trading post also served as a traveler's rest for settlers and traders using the nearby Red River Oxcart Trail. It was the first building constructed in Anoka and provided a temporary home for traders, missionaries and settlers.
