The award-winning Passport to North Dakota History, a traveler’s guide to historic sites, was unveiled in May 2008, in a ceremony at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck that was attended by Lieutenant Governor Jack Dalrymple and project sponsors. “The Passport to North Dakota History guide is a great way to showcase North Dakota's rich heritage and historic attractions for residents and visitors alike, as well as to chronicle the state's legendary journey into the past,” Dalrymple said.
