Most of the presentations are regarding North Dakota history, said organizer Alden Kollman.

Programs at the 1883 Stutsman County Courthouse are set for 1 p.m. Saturdays through Aug. 24.


The courthouse also offers a junior sheriff program for children, said Steve Reidburn. In addition, the courthouse is also offering an escape room for teens and adults.

“These are beautiful places,” said Jamestown Tourism Director Searle Swedlund. “And now we’ve created more reasons to come visit them.”
