Prairie Outpost Park
Located on 12 acres of city property near Interstate 94, Prairie Outpost Park's five historic and six reproduction buildings include the Pioneer Machinery Building, Ridgeway Lutheran Church, the Gorham General Store and Post Office, Northern Pacific Railroad Depot, a German-Russian stone house and a blacksmith shop. Tours are available from Memorial Day until mid-August.
The Prairie Outpost Park is an amazing visit. It is great for people of all ages. The price is free, but I would pay over $100 to gain access to such historical landmarks of southwestern North Dakota. The museum is the greatest Dinosaur Museum in Southwestern ND and I would veture to say all of Western ND. The exibits are life like and very real looking. I also enjoyed the picnic area at the park...exquisit. The best thing about the whole outpost park, was the McDonald's, only one block West of the park.
I would also like to comment on the immaculate grass. The grass was freshly cut at a perfect level. It was the greenest grass I have seen since grazing the boreal forest of East Africa.
