Copy Address | Address copied to clipboard

Located at 101 E. Main St., Bismarck, this site preserves part of a military installation established as Camp Greeley in 1872 to provide protection for work gangs then building the Northern Pacific Railroad. The camp's name was changed to Camp Hancock in 1873. After being decommissioned as a military supply post, the site became a national weather station. The log headquarters, the oldest building in Bismarck, stands on the site. It has been enlarged and remodeled several times, and the logs have been concealed by clapboard siding. The building serves as an interpretive museum for artifacts and information about local history. On the grounds, tour the city's oldest church with LaFarge stained glass windows and get a close-up look at a 1909 steam locomotive.
