Gypsy Journal RV: Overlooked America — North Dakota

From the bloggers at Gypsy Journal RV.

Abercrombie: Fort Abercrombie State Historic Site preserves the historic Army fort that was under siege by the Sioux in 1862. Fort Abercrombie was the first permanent military fort established in what was to become North Dakota, and was known as “the Gateway to the Dakotas.”

Alexander: Housed in a 1914 school building with original furnishings, the Lewis and Clark Trail Homestead Museum exhibits include a scale model of Fort Mandan, where Lewis and Clark spent the winter of 1804-1805, as well as saddles, cars, and machinery from homesteading days.

Bowman: The Pioneer Trails Regional Museum preserves the history within a 100-mile radius of Bowman North Dakota with displays relating to early cattle trails, ranches, and homesteading.

Center: Fort Clark Trading Post State Historic Site is one of the most important archeological sites in the state because of its well-preserved record of the fur trade and of personal tragedy. More than 150 years ago it was the scene of devastating smallpox and cholera epidemics that decimated most of the inhabitants of a Mandan and Arikara Indian village.
