The Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park is located near Danbury, Wisconsin on 80 beautiful wooded acres along the historic Yellow River. ?The park is a living history site with two Fur Trade Posts; North West Company and the XY Company, reconstructed on the site known to be active from 1802 to 1805. The site is the venue of the annual Great Folle Avoine Fur Trade Rendezvous held in July.

The park, a National Register of Historic Places site, is operated by the Burnett County Historical Society with support from its membership and Burnett County. These Yellow River trading posts were abandoned and forgotten, then re-discovered in 1969 by Harris and Francis Palmer and Gene and Lafayette Connor. Through the extant journal of George Nelson, an XY Company clerk, researchers were able to locate the site and begin excavating.

The Folle Avoine site is unique for several reasons: the exact place of the wintering posts was found, the posts had been undisturbed for over 200 years allowing archeologists a pure site to investigate, and two competing companies were at the same location. Charred remains provided evidence and enabled reconstruction of the wintering posts exactly as they were over two hundred years ago!
