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.
Every monument has a story behind it, whether it commemorates a specific person of importance or a tragedy that affected hundreds of people. No matter what the monument is made of or looks like, the reason it is there is to remind us of why it was made. This North Dakota monument near the city of Wahpeton is especially unique and the story behind it is even more bizarre. Believe it or not, it’s true!
The chances of something like this happening are certainly rare, and there’s no other place with a monument quite like it. You can visit the monument for yourself at the Riverside Cemetery, 8095 182nd Ave SE, Wahpeton, ND.
