About Fort Henry
Fort Henry was the first American trading post erected in the Columbia River basin, and consisted of a log cabin built on the north fork of Snake River in the fall of 1810 by Andrew Henry for the Missouri Fur Company as a place to carry on trade with the Indians. From this location the stream is sometimes called Henry’s Fork of the Snake River. The fort was isolated and the trappers were unable to obtain supplies. To add to their woes, the winter proved quite severe, causing the party to abandon this post in 1811. It was situated on the southeast side of the town of Egin, Idaho, about 2.6 miles from the Fort Henry Rendezvous site.
