Trading posts played an important historical role in commerce and social life in the Grand Circle. Proprietors of the posts traded necessities like food, tools, and raw materials for weaving for rugs, baskets, pottery, and jewelry. The names of many famous historic trading posts, like Toadlena, Two Gray Hills, Newcomb, and Crystal, are still on the map and some of them still sell Native American handicrafts.
