On August 28, 1883, two tracts of 160 acres were deeded to the Territory of North Dakota from the Northern Pacific Railroad Company for the land on which the ND State Capitol was erected, which includes two parks.
North Dakota has enjoyed two statehouses, the first constructed during the territorial period (1883-4) five years before statehood in 1889. Fire consumed the Capitol on the night of December 28, 1930. They sold 160 acres of the Capitol grounds to help pay for the second building. The second and present Capitol was completed in 1934, in the depths of the Great Depression.
