Discover A Prehistoric Gem Near Napoleon, North Dakota
I was coming back from a duck hunting trip last fall when I decided to make a pit stop in Napoleon, North Dakota. One of the few cities I've never had the pleasure of visiting before in North Dakota. As a lifelong North Dakotan, there are very few cities in the state I haven't at least stopped at a gas station before. Between hunting and fishing trips, and my job, I've been to nearly all of them.
Now, I can cross Napoleon off my list. I did run into something rather interesting right before the city on highway 34. "The Dinosaurs on the Prarie" display a few miles east of the city.
The dinosaurs however are not the kind you see in Jurassic Park. They're a "Threshing Machine Collection." Steam threshing machines which at one time were essential to farming communities.
Here's a look at this impressive collection with 30 machines from yesteryear.
