  • Great place, too bad its only open once a year
  • Buckstop Junction is a nice little "slice of history" on the edge of Bismarck, North Dakota. It has old, historic buildings in a rustic late 19th or early 20th century setting. It is a nice place for gatherings like family reunions or weddings.
