Visit The Oldest Building In North Dakota At This Fascinating Historic Site

North Dakota has quite an extensive history. Long before it was a state, some of the first European explorers and settlers were beginning to break into the relatively untouched prairies. One of the first European explorers to ever do that was Antoine Blanc Gingras, and remnants of his life are still around in the state today — and you can visit them.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Even though these may be the oldest European-built structures in North Dakota, there are reconstructed buildings you can visit elsewhere in the state that came long, long before. Check out this amazing Native American village to see what we’re talking about.
