The most fascinating aspect of this site is the outside map showing all of the buildings that no longer sit on the site. The site could certainly benefit from additional effort to explain these buildings and their purposes, perhaps through a short trail across the grounds with explanatory placards.

If you like History, and get a feel of stepping back in time, take a moment to drive out to the south of mandan and learn and walk in the footsteps of the mandan indians as well as custers forts....good deal

I was a nice visit to the begining of Bismarck with the church and a little museum. I was free to visit and there was a guide when we were there.
