Heritage Center Adds Historical Feature

Posted: Updated:
The North Dakota Heritage Center added a new feature to its outdoor plaza today.

Seventeen rock formations known as Cannonball concretions were donated to the Heritage Center by the Morton Country Water Resources Board and arranged near the center's new entrance. The formations are a unique feature to North Dakota's geography. Coordinators at the center say these rock formations will contribute to telling the story of North Dakota's ancient past.

"Being able to show people some of these ancient stones and the stories around them, of the seas that have come and gone across the state over millions of years is exciting," says Claudia Berg the Heritage Center expansion coordinator.

One unique fact about these rock formations, is that the Cannonball River was named after them.
