River Junction Trade Co. is a direct supplier and has become well-known for accurate recreation of period-correct clothing for park professionals and volunteers.  Our clothing is made of materials common to the period, and yet they are durable and able to withstand the hard use required for active daily wear.  River Junction offers clothing to accommodate re-enactments of time periods between the 1860s through 1900s.

"We are located on the banks of the Mississippi River – and consider ourselves lucky to live so close to River Junction Trade Co. headquarters in historic McGregor, Iowa.  They have been our go-to place for men’s clothing for many years – their hats, coats, vests, shirts, trousers and shoes are well designed and work perfectly in our 1890s interpretive program.  More recently we have begun buying more and more women’s clothing- especially hats and shirt waists and I am certain that we will be doing even more business in the future.  We appreciate the effort that owners Jim and Linda Boeke put into creating historic clothing that looks right, feels great to wear ,and is priced right for our budget.  Thanks guys!  We look forward to future opportunities to work with you to appropriately wardrobe our staff from the shelves and workrooms of River Junction Trade Co."
