History Is Between Mandan and Dickinson

11/18/15

You can find out information about the communities of Mandan, Almont/Sims, New Salem, Glen Ullin, Hebron, Richardton, Taylor, Gladstone and Dickinson that you never knew.  You can view the photos that take you back to when they began, as they progressed, and also how people traveled prior to the construction of interstate 94 along old Highway 10.

The Old Red Old Ten Scenic Byway web site, www.oldredoldten.com, has added articles, information, historic photos of the communities along the highway, and the Keogh and Custer Trails. This past summer the Old Red Old Ten Scenic Byway Committee contracted with local Shanna Shervheim to research and document old articles and photos that bring the information to the public on the web site.

Along with the community histories, information and photos related to the ND Department of Transportation’s part in road construction is also highlighted.  The ND DOT has provided many interesting photos that show just how hard it could be to travel in adverse conditions in the early automobiles, along with antique looking construction vehicles that were used to build the roads and maintain them.

If you are a Custer buff, the web site also provides information on specific camp sites between Mandan and Dickinson where the army rested during the 1876 campaign to the Little Big Horn.  Current locations, google maps, historical maps, and excerpts from soldier’s dairies give you a sense of time and place during the long march and what the soldiers experienced and endured.
