Fur trappers and traders followed them a few years later. Steamboats began making it from St. Louis up the Missouri as far as Fort Benton in the early 1860's. Wolf Point was the halfway point between Bismark and Fort Benton. Wood choppers supplied cord wood for boats stopping to refuel. The American Fur Company pocket Chippewa blew up and sank not far from here in 1867. A deck hand tapped a barrel of alchohol by candle light. The fumes, the candle and 25 kegs of black powder did the rest. Fortunately no lives were lost in the disaster.'
