Assumption Abbey

North Dakota


Assumption Abbey in Richardton, North Dakota.

Assumption Abbey is a gorgeous Romanesque Church that rises out of the prairie and literally touches the sky.  Located in the small town of Richardton along Interstate 94 just 16 miles east of Dickenson North Dakota, this amazing architectural gem seems almost out of place in the Great Plains of North Dakota, but once you get over the initial shock of seeing this towering stone structure, it actually seems to "fit" in the small prairie town of Richardton North Dakota.

Assumption Abbey was founded in 1893 by a monk of the Swiss Abbey of Einsiedeln, and is a Benedictine monastery and church.   In addition to enjoying the massive cathedral, visitors are welcome to spend time at the Abbey Gift Shop and also the Abbey Wine Cellar for the renowned Assumption Abbey wines.
