Everyone should learn about the heritage of the state they live in. Each one has a story that the people within it have shaped over the years, and most of those stories began long before the state had borders and the name we know today. North Dakota’s rich history can be explored perfectly at this fascinating riverside village that everyone should visit at least once.

The Knife River Indian Villages Historic Site is located at 564 County Road 37, Staton, ND 58571. The site is open year round and is entirely free to visit. For more information, click here.
