The Missouri Flats Inn and Williston are surrounded by many beautiful areas of interest.

Area Activities

Fort Union: Built near the junction of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers in 1828 by John Jacob Astor's American Fur Company, and until 1867, it dominated the fur trade on the upper Missouri River.  The Assiniboine, Cree, Crow, Blackfeet, Ojibwa, Hidatsa, Mandan and Arikara Indians all traded bison hides and other furs for goods at Fort Union during itʼs time.

Fort Union Trading Post has been partially restored to its 1851 appearance.  It features the lavish Bourgeois House, Museum and a Visitor Center.  Historic reenactments bring the rich history of this area into the present!

Fort Buford: This is the actual site of the surrender of the Sioux Chief Sitting Bull, five years after the Battle of the Little Bighorn. The guardhouse here held Sitting Bull as well as the legendary Chief Joseph. The stone powder magazine and the field officer's quarters are original buildings which now house a museum, and are open to the public.

Area Activities

The Confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers: Come see the magnificent view the Lewis and Clark Expedition members enjoyed when they visited the area in 1804 and 1806.  An Interpretive Center for the Confluence allows you to really see the impact of people arriving to the area by rivers, roads, trails and tracks of people arriving by trail, tracks, rivers and roads.
