A new online database makes it possible for us to take a trip back into Bismarck’s history from home. 

What started as a single photo album, has become an online archive that holds nearly 2,000 pictures.

The Bismarck Public Library has spent at least 15 years putting together the digital photograph collection.

They are calling it Bismarck – Capital City Memories. The collection of images begins in the early pioneer days and ends in the 1990’s.

Bismarck Public Library’s Head of Information Services Kate Waldera says, “It’s given me a whole new appreciation because many of these [buildings] are still standing. So when I drive down Main Avenue I can see these buildings and think of what it must have been like when they were just brand new and growing, and becoming more and more vibrant.”

The project was made possible by volunteers who either loaned or donated historical photographs.
