Bonanzaville ribbon cutting set for Tuesday

Bonanzaville is inviting the public to join them for the opening reception and ribbon cutting for their new exhibit “Resurrected Treasures; Recently Acquired Artifacts” on Tuesday, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Rotating Exhibit Gallery.

This exhibit will feature donated artifacts that the museum has received over the last three years ranging from an F-4 Phantom drag chute from the North Dakota Air National Guard to a clock set. See one of the oldest telephone switchboard systems in the United States, World War I and World War II apparel, a tombstone and more. Many of these unique, local artifacts have a story tied to them that makes them such a treasure.

This exhibit will run from March 4 to May 26. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served during the opening reception. Admission is free to attend this opening.

For further information or questions regarding the exhibition, please contact museum Curator Andrew Nielsen at (701) 282-2822 or
