Stave Church, Scandinavian Heritage Park, Minot North Dakotaprairie, a rich cowboy, pioneer farmers and Native American history paints the background of this great midwestern state... but there is much more here than meets the eye.  

Lewis and Clark spent much of their time in North Dakota during their world-changing expedition in the early 1800s...and is in fact where they hired Sakakawea, the Indian guide who became one of the key components that lead to the success of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Beyond Lewis and Clark, there are countless attractions and points of interest that highlight the rich history that occurred here which helped shape this remarkable area into the North Dakota of today.

Lewis and Clark Expedition
First explored by Europeans between 1738 and 1740 by French-Canadians, North Dakota was part of the Louisiana Purchase of 1803, and
North Dakota Lewis and Clark Interpretive Centersoon became part of the route of the famous Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804-06. 

One of the most significant events that occurred during their time in North Dakota on the Missouri River has they headed up stream to the wilds of Montana and beyond, what when they "hired" Sakakawea as their guide. (Spelled Sacajawea in Montana and Idaho).  This decision proved to be a very good one as Sakakawea became one of the key elements to the success of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, where without her expertise, history would have taken a completely different turn.
