Inscription.  Capital-Bismarck

This area was sold to the United States in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase. Lewis and Clarke explored the region in 1804-5 and settlement attempts were made around 1812 by Scottish and Irish families. In 1818 the United States obtained more of the region from Great Britain. However, for many years the area was chiefly inhabited by Indians and fur trappers until the construction of the railroad in the 1870s and 1880s. The state was formed from the Dakota Territory, organized in 1861.

1738-Explored by Sieur de la Verendrye for France
