Camp Hancock State Historical Site Jun 17, 2010
Originally set up as Camp Greeley back in 1872 to provide protection to railroad gangs that were building the North Pacific Railway. Only a year later the name was changed to Camp Hancock. Still on the site are the log headquarters which has seen many updates and changes and is no longer the “log” building built in 1872. Also you will see the “Bread of Life Church, the oldest church in Bismarck, and a 1909 Northern Pacific Locomotive (which was going through quite a repaint). There are picnic areas and restrooms now at the site and the church is available for weddings for a small fee. There are a few story boards with descriptive data and pictures at the site.

Unfortunately we were there on a Thursday and the sight is only open Friday through Sunday from 1pm til 5pm, so we didn’t get to go in and see what was on display in their headquarters.
