Fort Buford Historic Site
In 1895 the fort was dismantled and the garrison was transferred to Fort Assiniboine, Montana.
The original adobe buildings providing quarters for 300 men were later replaced by about 100 frame buildings: though most of the buildings were sold and removed upon dismantling the fort. A stone powder magazine and the headquarters building are preserved on their original sites. The old military cemetery is also preserved.
