From antique cars, to trains, to aviation, and a wide variety of older buildings to tour around, Bonanzaville is an interesting place to visit.

We were passing through Fargo and looking for something to do, Bonanzaville was a good way to pass a couple of hours and see some interesting things. The 1903 Model A is a particularly cool item in the collection.

This is a very interesting place. I had no idea they had such large farms back in the 1800's. The buildings are in excellent shape and the historical artifacts are in great condition.

Nice little historical Park on the east side of Fargo. Really nice museum, and the outside to see various old buildings moved there. Lots to see, easy to walk around, and lots of parking.
