Very Interesting tour
sie 2018
I enjoyed this tour. We weren't able to go in new building, as there was a wedding that day. It was still a very worthwhile tour. You get to see the house and other buildings. It is nice to have something like this in our area. More people should check it out.

Farming History Gem

We were driving through and there didn’t seem to be much else to see. Very happy we came. We learned a lot about the development of large scale farming in ND. I’d not heard of bonanza farms. Pairs well with having just been to the Mill City Museum in Minneapolis

History Preserved to Share with You and Me!
cze 2018 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
If you are driving on I-29 in the Southeastern part of North Dakota near Mooreton, it would be a shame if you passed up an opportunity to see this amazing historical site which takes you back to the age of the North Dakota Bonanza Farm! The old buildings and the property look to be well taken care of for your enjoyment. Tours are only offered Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12:00pm-5:00pm during the summer. It takes a lot of work to make old property look this good! Thank you for preserving a part of North Dakota history for many others to learn from, and enjoy! The Bagg Bonanza Farm is a "must see" for anyone interested in North Dakota history.

This place is a must for anyone interested in history
lip 2017 • Pary
As a "Bonanza" farm, this place has a special place in history. It has been lovingly restored, and it has a story to tell. Virginia, professional photographer, author, and a participant in the restoration, guides you through the buildings and reveals the fascinating history of the place and the stories of the people who lived and worked there. This place is well worth a visit, and, if you are lucky, Virginia may have some of her very delicious homemade pie for sale--a tasty treat for after the tour.

My sister and I are related to the Bagg family and we were so thankful for being able to tour the place while close to the farm. Virginia was great and very knowledgeable. Can't wait to come back again! -Alicia

Little Known History - Interesting
sie 2015 • Pary
I really like history, but didn't know much about Bonanza farms before this. Bonanza Farms were a 19th century phenomenon where investors bought up thousands of acres and hired large gangs of workers to farm the land. The Bagg farm was a headquarters for one of these.

When you think about farming thousands of acres with horses, you get an idea of the scale of this place. The Bagg farm is a well preserved house and out buildings that were rescued from collapse by local history lovers. Many artifacts and interesting stories about the people who lived and worked here. Be sure to take the tour.

If you love history, you will learn a LOT!

A Wonderful Look into Early 20th Century Farm Life
cze 2016 • Pary
In the 1880's my husband's great-great uncle left New York State to take advantage of cheap land being sold by the Northern Pacific Railroad in North Dakota. The farmstead was preserved, beginning in 1991 by a group of local citizens, and is now a National Historic Landmark known as the Bagg Bonanza Farm. My husband drove out to North Dakota to tour the farm and to fulfill a bucket list item of visiting my 50th state.
They have done a wonderful job of preserving the buildings as they were in the early part of the early 20th century, When the farm ceased operations in 1950 the buildings became a time capsule of furniture and implements. With donations of money, labor, and enthusiastic support and with the guidance of the last surviving Bragg children and people who worked there in its heyday, the Bagg Bonanza Farm now can show people what farm life was like a hundred years ago. Our tour of the farm was lead by the lady who was instrumental in getting the vision accomplished and she did a great job with very interesting anecdotes about the Bagg family and the farm workers.

It would have been great if I had visited after Memorial Day
maj 2016
The history of the Bagg Bonanza Farm is very interesting and until this trip one that I did not know. I wish I had read the information sheet better as it clearly stated the tours begin after Memorial Day. As it was I made the trip down from Fargo for a "self guided" trip. I did enjoy looking around and shooting some pictures.

Beautiful Historic Place
maj 2015 • Znajomi
Stoppped here one Saturday when we were in MN visiting friends. We were going to take a look around the outside. Just so happened there were people here working around the place. One lady was cleaning in the house and showed us around and she knew all about the history of the place. It was so interesting, she was so nice to take out and visit with us. So glad we drove over to see the place.

Bagg Bonanza Farm In Mooreton, ND
wrz 2015 • Znajomi
This a fascinating tour to learn the history of bonanza farming. The tour guide showed us a 20 minutes video on the history and then took us to the individual building and provided the history. I am amazed that three people shared one bed. The men's quarters did not have heat and chamber pots. There were two metal wires from the ceiling that led the men to the stairs so they can go out to the outhouse.

It's a must do if you are in Mooreton.
