Fort Dilts State Historic Site

Located about three miles northeast of Rhame, this site marks the location of a sod-wall protective enclosure, hastily constructed by an 80-wagon party and their cavalry escort. They were attacked by Sioux Indians while en route to Montana gold fields in September 1864 and stayed corralled within the six-feet high and two-feet thick walls for fourteen days until rescued by a column of troops from Fort Rice. There is a marker on the site. A great day trip from Dickinson, ND!

North of Rhame 2.5 miles, West 1.5 miles.
