Fort Seward

Step back in time as you explore Fort Seward, which overlooks the beautiful James River Valley in Jamestown, ND.

The well-kept grounds feature an interpretive center and the largest United States flag on display in North Dakota (weather permitting). Fort Seward was in operation from 1872 to 1877.

The main job of the men who served there was to oversee the building of the railroad through Jamestown. Today, it is the starting point for the Fort Seward, Inc. Annual Wagon Train, as well as the host for the annual Big Guns of the Old West event.

If you want to experience Fort Seward as the men did in 1875, you can camp (or glamp as everything except your food is provided) in a Sibley tent.
