Historic areas of the NPS in North Dakota[edit]

National Historic Sites, National Historical Parks, some National Monuments, and certain other areas listed in the National Park system are historic landmarks of national importance that are highly protected already, often before the inauguration of the NHL program in 1960, and are then often not also named NHLs per se. There are two of these in North Dakota. The National Park Service lists these two together with the NHLs in the state,[3]

Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site is also an NHL and is listed above. The other one is:
