This river-fording spot was long used by Native Americans, until the community was settled by whites in 1872.

The Northern Pacific named the community after the German chancellor Prince Otto von Bismarck in the hope of attracting German investment in the railway when it reached the Missouri.

Gold was discovered in the nearby Black Hills in 1874, and Bismarck developed into an important outfitting and transport centre for miners.

Bismarck's major points of interest are the State Capitol and the North Dakota Heritage Centre, containing the state's major museum and exhibits of Great Plains history.

South of Bismarck is the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, where the Sioux chief Sitting Bull was killed on December 15, 1890 and buried at Fort Yates.
