Fort Buford State Historic SiteThe Telegraph Office was a single-story, wood frame building measuring thirty-six by seventeen feet. Extension of the telegraph line from Fort Stevenson (near Garrison, ND) to Fort Buford was completed in October 1878. The arrival of the telegraph greatly enhanced the speed of communications to and from Fort Buford. Prior to the telegraph, communications with "the States" and other frontier posts was sometimes irregular and infrequent.
