The Unique Village In North Dakota Where Time Stands Still

If you’d like to get a taste of North Dakota history in a little village where time hasn’t moved past the days of the settlers, then you must visit this particular museum. You’ll need to head over to the geographical center of North America in the town of Rugby, ND, and there you’ll find this hidden gem. It’s like stepping into a time machine that takes you back a century and never moves from there. Take a look for yourself:
