Online tour available of Fort Mandan

An online tour of Fort Mandan in Washburn, N.D., Lewis and Clark's winter home of 1804-05, is available on the Lewis and Clark Fort Mandan Foundation's Web site, www.fortmandan.com

"With a click of the mouse, Internet users can now walk through the various rooms of our reconstructed Fort Mandan and get a peek at what life was like for the Corps of Discovery 200 years ago," says Kristie Frieze, foundation executive director.

A link to the virtual tour is on the home page of www.fortmandan.com. It also is a source of information about the foundation, Fort Mandan and the North Dakota Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. Links to student and teacher resources, a calendar of events and a directory of other Lewis and Clark and North Dakota heritage tourism sites are also included.

For those who wish to visit in person, both Fort Mandan and the center are open yeararound, with current winter hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is $7.50 for adults and $5 for students, with members free.
