Located three-quarters of a mile southwest of Ft. Ransom in southeastern North Dakota, this site marks the location of a 200-man military post built in 1867. Although building locations and the dry moat, once eight feet deep, are still clearly discernible, nothing else remains of the original fort or its twelve-feet-high sod and log stockade. There is a marker on the site. Fort Ransom State Park is located nearby.
