Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the State Historic Sites Registry, Camp Hancock State Historic Site preserves part of a military installation that was established as Camp Greeley in 1872, to provide protection for workers building the Northern Pacific Railroad. Changed to Camp Hancock in 1873, the camp's log headquarters still stands and is now an interpretive museum filled with local artifacts and information. Visitors can also see the Bread of Life Episcopal Church and a Northern Pacific steam locomotive. The buildings are open from mid-May through mid-September.
