Mandan and Vicinity

-A A +A

Situated at the confluence of the Heart River and Missouri River, Mandan was founded in 1881 and rebounded from several disastrous fires. Mandan is proud of its western “cowboy” heritage and of a whistlestop visit to the community by Theodore Roosevelt in 1903. The Mandan Historical Society was formed in 2004 to foster and celebrate appreciation of the community’s rich and distinctive architectural heritage.
