Historical Sites in North Dakota

"Retirement is Grand" posted a new entry from their Lewis and Clark Trail road trip, called New Town, North Dakota.

Sites on the itinerary were:

Fort Mandan Visitor Center, a replica of the stockade where the Expedition spent the winter of 1804-1805, located in Washburn, ND.

Knife River Indian Villages, a reconstructed Hidatsa Indian village located in Stanton, ND

Fort Union Trading Post, an important fur trading post that was in use between 1828 and 1867, located in Williston, ND

Some personal narrative relating the story of each site is given, and a few good photos from each visit (and the drive along the way) are included.
