The Sibley Historic Site was the home of Henry Hastings Sibley, the regional manager of the American Fur Company and Minnesota's first governor. Located in what is now the city of Mendota, the site consists of four limestone buildings and a large lawn area. Three of the buildings are open for touring, including a fur company cold store from 1843 and the 1840 home of fur trader and hotelier Jean-Baptiste Faribault. It is one of 26 historical sites operated by the Minnesota Historical Society.
