Take a step back in time when you visit the reconstructed Fort Mandan, the winter home of the Lewis & Clark Expedition from 1804-1805. The fully-furnished quarters bring to life what it was like for the brave men in the Corps of Discovery during that North Dakota winter over 200 years ago. 

Site also includes Headwaters Fort Mandan Visitor Center, an exhibit in fly ash use, a play and discovery center with outdoor Kiwanis playground, Seaman Overlook with a 1,400-pound steel sculpture of Lewis' dog, coal combustion product display, walking trails, picnic areas and cross-country ski trails.
