“Little Houses on the Prarie”
Step inside our historic buildings and hear the stories of the people who moved here, built our towns and homesteaded the prairies of North Dakota. You will view actual buildings dating from 1875 to 1935 with traceable histories in our area. The buildings were moved to this site by the Missouri Valley Historical Society for preservation. They offer visitors a feel for the atmosphere of the Missouri River Valley during the time. Some of the buildings: Lein School #2 built in 1906 from near Arena, the Yegen Store built in 1877 from Bismarck, the Sterling Depot built in 1885, the Bethel Lutheran Church (1916) from near Coleharbor, the 1930s Capital Aviation hangar and the James Foley home both from Bismarck. Other early buildings include a Post Office, bank, barber shop, mine camp, farm museum, the Gellner Home (Germans from Russia), claim shack, Northern Pacific caboose and the Swedish Engstrom home (currently under restoration). Be sure to reserve some time before or after your tour to browse The Vintage Shoppe at Buckstop Junction for North Dakota collectables, decor or your very own copy of "Old Walls do Tell Tales, the Pioneer Stories of Buckstop Junction."Our Old Settlers' Day/Corn Feed is held the third Sunday of August. Buckstop Junction: The little old town that never was, but is today!
This place, closed when we went, seems to be mainly a sort of open-air special-events location. Check their website for days of operation; they're kind of erratic. From the outside, it looks like it could be quite a fun setting for a community celebration, especially if you have kids.
