There’s No Attraction In The World Like This One In North Dakota
Generally, places that have “dinosaur” in their name actually mean the prehistoric beings that used to roam the planet. This place in North Dakota, however, is unique. It’s called Dinosaurs on the Prairie and has an unusual yet interesting take on a museum of fossils (sort of), relics of the past, in an outdoor setting.
These relics are not made of bones, but of metal. They are actually antique threshing machines, long since retired, in a collection put together by John “Custer” Grenz to commemorate the farming technologies of the past.
