The Two Harbors area is rich in history. It was first inhabited by Native American Indians who lived by the sea and traded with mainland Indians. Spanish explorers, fur traders and even pirates and smugglers visited Two Harbors throughout the years. During the Civil War, a unit of the Union Army was stationed here. Their barracks building still stands in testament to their brief stay. Many Hollywood movie studios used the Two Harbors area as a “ South Seas” back drop to film classics, one being “ Mutiny on The Bounty”.
