Bismarck River Warehouse
Frequently, as many as 20 steamboats would be moored at the wharf engaged in transporting supplies to military posts and pioneer settlements. Steamboat traffic used the Missouri River from St. Louis to the head of navigation at Fort Benton, Montana, and the lower reaches of the Yellowstone River.
The history of steamboat navigation presents one of the most colorful phases of North Dakota history.
Erected 1955 by State Historical Society of North Dakota.
