Northern Plains Heritage Foundation
Thirty years ago, a group of local leaders in business, tourism and education formed the Fort Abraham Lincoln Foundation to rebuild the Custer House. They succeeded, furnished the house as it was in Custer's time, and opened it to the public with the Foundation's signature "living history tours" in 1989.
After the house, with private donations and federal funds, the Foundation rebuilt the Commissary, Granary, Barracks and Stable, and expanded its efforts to include On-A-Slant Village, where it reconstructed and filled six earth lodges with information about the Mandan Indians, pioneers of agriculture and city building in the area.
Altogether, the Foundation has raised and invested $10 million in the infrastructure and interpretation at Fort Lincoln. Over the years, the Foundation has stepped forward for the community in other ways, too, coming to operate Five Nations Arts and the Lewis and Clark Riverboat.
Today the Fort Abraham Lincoln Foundation is proud to say that after making Fort Lincoln a world class historical attraction, it is turning in another broader direction and will not operate the interpretive program at the park in 2013. We wish the State Park well in maintaining the highest-level interpretation and visitor services.
The Fort Abraham Lincoln Foundation's mission has always been promotion and development of North Dakota's heritage tourism, and it will continue to be so. With the close of one mission, others open. The best is yet to come.
