1. Schoolhouse Marker
Inscription.  The schoolhouse provided the basics of reading and writing for children living at the post. Even soldiers sought education within the walls that once stood on this spot. Many of the soldiers serving in the infantry post could not read or write. It was here, during off-duty hours, that many of the soldiers learned these skills.

This simple wood-framed schoolhouse served a variety of other roles, including those of chapel, meeting house, and library.
 
Erected by North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department.
