Great little "town" for a wedding venue. Went to one here last year and it felt like we were in our own little town for the night!

A lot of the past century is on display here, including a running HO model train layout (huge!) in the hotels basement. Open house for that on thursday evenings, all are welcome. Full size rail cars you can tour, many buildings moved there from other towns. Nostalgia personified and a nice little store. Well worth a whole day to visit.
Went to a wedding here. I enjoyed the locations- they were authentic and original, old buildings brought in from around North Dakota. Buildings are in good condition- signs of aging, but the owners do a good job keeping everything looking nice.
