About North Dakota

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.

North Dakota Parklands

Fort Lincoln State Park:
Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park, on the other side of the Missouri River near Mandan, is the site of a former military post which was commanded by Lieutenant Colonel George A. Custer; before he rode out to the Battle of Little Bighorn in Montana.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park:
President Theodore Roosevelt so adored the Badlands that he bought the Elkhorn Ranch.

Although many people lazily appreciate the park's 36 mile scenic automobile route from behind the wheel of their cars, there are plenty of hiking trails for the more active.
