Bird's eye view of Mandan, Dak., county seat of Morton Co. 1883. Beck & Pauli, lithographers.

Reproduction map of Mandan, North Dakota in 1883. Incorporated in 1879, Mandan lies just across the Missouri River from the city of Bismarck. Named for the Mandan tribe that occupied the area when white Europeans traveling along the Missouri first appeared in the 1730s. The Mandan tribe, unlike the other nomadic tribes in the region, established permanent villages and practiced agriculture. Their friendliness and willingness to trade brought many European fur-trappers to their villages. Sadly, epidemics of small pox and whooping cough resulted in the tribe being reduced to only a few members by the 1830s. This reproduction map shows the Library of Congress stamp, dated October 31, 1883. The Heart River is shown in the foreground. Insets on lower left and right depict the North Pacific Rail Road Passenger Depot and the Hagers Block. Title cartouche notes "Mandan, Dak., County Seat of Morton County". This beautiful map provides a look at the beginnings of the city. Complete reference list below.
