Lots of old houses, buildings to tour. Interesting to learn the history of them. I was there during the annual corn feed and Apple fest. Great food and things for kids to participate in. Usually have craft and vendors for your shopping convenience. No alcohol is served or allowed.

Went out to Buckstop Junction for "Applefest" which was a bust. They call it Applefest but nothing baked home made with apples. Sure you can get an apple pie baked from Dan's grocery store but you can do that any day of the week. I would pay double for something home made from apples. Nice band playing and things for...

This is such a neat place to visit, we enjoy going into and looking at the old buildings. Can't get enough of the history and character of these buildings. Wish it was open more often.

We went during a special event they had while we ended up being in town. Something like a pioneer day. The buildings are well kept and we enjoyed the actors who put on a little bank robbery show downtown.

We had a lovely tour with Larry. He was knowledgable, friendly, and helpful. Enjoyed the PO, the bank, the general store, gas station, and the period homes. We were only in ND for a short weekend and this was one of the highlights of our trip. Perfect for kids too, there is enough variety to maintain their interest (9 years... More

Whether you are older and want to reminisce or younger and want to learn about the past, Buckstop is a great place to visit. They have special events at times, but are open all year. You can walk the streets without fear of yourself or your children being run over, spend as much or as little time as you wish... More

When you come here you can see and feel the history but you are able to touch and feel how it was back when.

A re-creation of a North Dakota prairie town from the early 1900's - Buckstop Junction has gathered up an old train depot (and equipment), auto garages, banks, houses, and a hotel (among other buildings) from that era to preserve and present to the public. It also contains the Dakota Central & Western Model Railroad Museum, which has an extensive operating... More

every fall there is an Apple Fest at Buckstop. You are greeted with a glass of Apple juice freshly pressed from the antique apple press., the buildings come from surrounding little towns in Burleigh county, which otherwise would have been razed to make way for Progress. a fun afternoon takes you back in time to a much slower pace of...
