Garrison Dam and Lake Sakakawea are of great interest to visitors, as are the rich oil fields at Fryburg. A noteworthy historic site is the Château de Mores, the lodge of the Marquis de Mores, in the village of Medora, which was founded by the marquis in 1883. The state historic site at Fort Abercrombie contains restored infantry blockhouses dating from pioneer days, and Whitestone Hill Battlefield State Historic Site enshrines the site where a particularly fierce battle occurred between the Native Americans and United States Cavalry forces. The restored boyhood home of band leader Lawrence Welk can be visited in Strasburg. North America’s tallest structure, at 629 m (2,063 ft), is the television tower near Blanchard, north of Fargo. Native American tribes have opened gambling casinos in several areas.

Annual events


Residents and visitors enjoy year-round festivals and fairs in North Dakota. Historic sites featuring reenactments of pioneering days are especially popular in the summertime. West Fargo hosts the Red River Valley Fair in July. Sodbuster Days, in mid-July, remember the pioneer farmers with demonstrations of agricultural techniques using antique tools and engines. The North Dakota State Fair, held in Minot, is also in July. Dickinson Roughrider Days, during the Fourth of July weekend, is the city’s largest rodeo. Events feature barrel racing, roping, and bareback riding by professional rodeo riders. A long-running football rivalry between the University of North Dakota and North Dakota State University captures statewide attention with an annual game.
