There is always something new happening in town to further the destinations within the Minot area. This Saturday, June 25, the Ward County Historical Society is hosting the Grand Opening for their Pioneer Village Museum. The museum consists of twelve historical buildings that have been specifically brought to this new location in order to show visitors the village life during the early 1900s. Although the houses vary a little in time periods, all are equipped with furniture and artifacts of life in North Dakota from long ago.
Even though the Pioneer Village is open Tuesday thru Saturday 11-5pm for tours, the special grand opening this weekend will give visitors a chance to look through houses, experience a plethora of period-specific costumes, demonstrations and games from the turn of the century. The event will also feature live music, basket making tutorials, book signing from Hunter Andes, antique tractor and airplane displays and food and drink vendors. It is also worth mentioning that the Pioneer Village Museum is completely FREE to view! Since it is operated by the Historical Society it is free and open to the public, though they do accept donations.
The Pioneer Village Museum is located at 2/52 Burlington, which is only 6 miles west of Minot, and the family-friendly Grand Opening will be from 10-5pm this Saturday. This event offers the opportunity for the Minot area to engulf themselves in the past and get a better understanding of how ancestors lived. The whole family will enjoy this free glimpse into the past!

The Norwich Township Jail is one of the newest additions to the Pioneer Village Museum.
