Where To Go

Ft. Buford

Fort Buford was the site of the surrender of the famous Sioux Chief Sitting Bull, five years after the Battle of the Little Bighorn. The guardhouse at the fort held Sitting Bull as well as the legendary Chief Joseph following his defeat in the famed Nez Perce War. The stone powder magazine and the field officer's quarters, which now house a museum, are original buildings. They date from the 1870s and are open to the public. Echoes of the army can still be heard at Ford Buford.
