Bread of Life Church at Camp Hancock Historic Site

Image uploaded on January 3, 2010

North Dakota’s oldest church, built in 1881. Later renamed Saint George’s Episcopal Church. First located at Avenue A & Mandan Street, then relocated to corner of 3rd Street & Rosser Avenue. Donated to Camp Hancock in 1965.

Camp Hancock (originally Camp Greeley) was established in 1872 as a military post and supply depot to ensure expansion of the Northern Pacific Railroad. It contains the oldest remaining building in Bismarck, along with the historic Bread of Life Church, which was completed in 1881; and a vintage 1909 Northern Pacific Railroad Locomotive that was donated to the site in 1955.

Camp Hancock also housed the U.S. Weather Bureau until 1940.
