Belfield in Stark County, North Dakota — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
From the populated villages of Ukraine to the unsettled regions of North Dakota, the Ukrainian immigrants came here at the end of the 19th century. They emigrated from the “Bread Basket of Europe” to the virgin sodland yet untouched by man – from a region of warm climate to an area where long winters lay life dormant. Yet within a span of a lifetime, they developed here in Dakota a farming empire undreamed of by man.
The Ukrainian Pioneer Cross is dedicated to these hardy men and women. June 1974.
