This old fort was built to save people from a predicted indian attack. A self guiding history and tour is available on site.

An Indian scare alarmed the residents of Morton County in 1890. At Hebron the women and children were evacuated to Bismarck, and the men constructed a stockade in the northeast quarter of section 32-140-90, Custer Township just northwest of the city, which was named for the German ethnic food which had been stockpiled here due to its unlikelihood of spoiling. The scare proved to be false, and after a few days things had returned to normal. Its walls survived for many years, but the farming efforts of subsequent landowners eventually destroyed most physical evidence of the fort.
