Washburn To Get Event Center

Posted: Updated:


A new event center is coming -- not to Bismarck, but to Washburn.  

It's part of a seven million dollar capital improvement project currently underway at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center.  When it's done, the facility will seat 175 and host educational programs, concerts, community events, conferences and guest speakers with a view of the Missouri River.

"Beyond the things that are happening inside with our exhibits, we're also adding approximately 9,000 square feet in an event center, a research library, some amenities for our visitors -- expanding it so that even more people can come and visit and learn about the history of North Dakota," says Kevin Kirkey, Interpretive Resource Manager at the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation.

Barring construction delays, the event center and library will open in June.  A new exhibit featuring German Prince Maximilian and Swiss artist Karl Bodmer -- and how they captured North Dakota's "vanishing frontier" during the 1830s -- opens this Monday.
