There's Only One Remaining Bonanza Farm In All Of North Dakota And You Need To Visit

Leah moved to North Dakota when she was 12 years old and has traveled from the Red River Valley to the badlands and many places in between. She loves small-town life and currently enjoys living on a small farm in the ND prairie. She's always had a passion for writing and has participated in novel writing challenges such as NaNoWriMo multiple times. Her favorite part about this job is recognizing small businesses that deserve a boost and seeing the positive affect her articles can have on their traffic, especially in rural areas that might have otherwise gone overlooked.
Bonanza farms were one of the essential things that made North Dakota what it is today, and much of western United States. They came up in a blink of an eye and seemed to fade away just as fast. Unfortunately, that part of our history is mostly gone and there are no true bonanza farms left in this state – except for one. While we have places that were made into bonanza themed museums like Bonanzaville in West Fargo, ND, we only have one true farm left that is still standing from where it was all those years ago and you can still visit it today.
