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.

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:
