Visit The First Permanent Military Fort In North Dakota For A Historic Experience

North Dakota has had a long history. It’s been the state we know it as today, part of the Dakota Territory, and the home of various peoples for hundreds, even thousands of years. Back in the days of the Dakota Territory, a lot happened. Trade flourished and settlers began to make their way across the land. To get there, they often passed through “the Gateway to the Dakotas.” This historic military fort in North Dakota is still there, and you can see it for yourself:
