Bonanzaville has a new 12-foot sign located high on the west wall of the Main Museum building that can be seen from I-94. The sign was constructed and donated by Custom Graphics, Fargo.

"We are so grateful for the generous support from Custom Graphics. This is a much-needed part of our plan to brand ourselves and create awareness as we continue to move Bonanzaville forward," said Troy White, Executive Director at Bonanzaville. "If we had a dollar for every time people asked where Bonanzaville is, we wouldn't need to do any fundraising."

Custom Graphics is also working with Bonanzaville to create better signage for the village and interpretation of the exhibits and artifacts. White's goal is to focus on the visitor experience and make Bonanzaville a must-see tourist destination.

Zach Paxton, General Manager of Custom Graphics had never been to Bonanzaville until White invited him out for a tour. "I had never been to Bonanzaville and didn't realize how significant it is," said Paxton, "This was a great way for us to give back to the community and help Bonanzaville with their mission."

Bonanzaville is operated by the Cass County Historical Society, with a mission to collect, display and interpret artifacts relevant to the history and cultural heritage of the Red River Valley. It is the region's largest historical attraction with 43 buildings, and more than 400,000 artifacts.
