Oldest Building In North Dakota

Field review by the editors.

Walhalla, North Dakota

Part of our "Who Cares?" Tour (which, frankly, we don't have the willpower to finish writing).

It's a perfectly preserved, hand-hewn log cabin, built in 1843, today surrounded by wheat fields. The "oldest standing structure built by Euro-Americans in North Dakota," according to a bronze plaque bolted to a nearby rock.

The state actually pays someone to sit out here, all day, in this isolated house, waiting for visitors. Make that person's day -- or week. Stop by.
