North Dakota - Bismarck


A few old downtown buildings, heading west on Broadway Avenue from 2nd Street to Mandan Street.

A pair of old downtown gas signs, on the side of Borrowed Bucks Roadhouse. I condensed the annoying corrugated bit in the center.

Camp Hancock was established as an infantry post in 1872, then converted into a quartermaster depot and signal office from 1877-1894. Somewhere under the weather bureau's siding is the original log building, enlarged over the years. You can see that other old building in the 2nd photo.

You may have noticed the Church of the Bread of Life behind Camp Hancock. It's the oldest church in Bismarck, dating to 1885.

Enjoy the 1909 Locomotive #2164, used by the Northern Pacific until 1955.
