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.
Address: 12899 105th Street NE, Walhalla, ND 58282
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.
