Fort Buford State Historic SiteThis building was constructed in 1871 as the post commanding officers' quarters. It served in that capacity until 1889, when a new commanding officers' quarters was built near the north side of the post. The single most important event that occurred in this building was the formal surrender of the Hunkpapa leader Sitting Bull. This event helped end warfare on the Northern Plains.
