The Unique Village In North Dakota Where Time Stands Still
By Leah|Published February 12, 2018
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.
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:
The Prairie Village Museum is located at 102 Hwy 2 SE, Ste 2, Rugby, ND 58368. During the winter season, the museum is open to tours by appointment only. During the summer it is open 7 days a week. Click here for more information.
