North Dakota Hotel Reservations
Three Affiliated Tribes Museum
When Lake Sakakawea was forming due to construction of the Garrison Dam on the Missouri River, two towns were about to get submerged by the new lake: Van Hook and Sanish. Consequently, they had to move, and they decided to combine and form a new town.
So, New Town, North Dakota was created in the early 1950s near Williston. The Fort Berthold Reservation was also located in an area where the lake would take over, and today the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara tribes share affiliations.
The Three Tribes Museum showcases this history, along with artifacts, displays, pictures, and more. The museum is open mid-April through early November and occasionally host traveling exhibits.
