Historic Northern Pacific Railway Depot and Beanery

-A A +A
1928, Howard Stevens, engineer. 401 W. Main St.

The Northern Pacific’s chief engineer, Stevens, replaced the old Mandan depot and lunchroom with a row of three Colonial Revival brick buildings that, according to him, were “unlike any existing NP depot in the country.” After passenger train service was terminated in 1979, the buildings were turned over to the City of Mandan. In 1992, the baggage building was demolished and the station and related beanery were remodeled and leased to area businesses. The depot currently operates as Five Nations Gallery and the gift store for the Fort Abraham Lincoln Foundation.
