MANDAN, N.D. - Hundreds of people were at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park Tuesday celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Custer House.

The replica stands on the site of the second house George Custer lived in at Fort Abraham Lincoln which was built in 1874. The site draws thousands of people every year. The celebration included a hike and ceremony to commemorate the anniversary.

"We have had problems in the past about things, but to understand where we're going forward as a nation we need to recognize certain things that have happened in our history, and this home represents a part of our history," said General George A. Custer, Steve Alexander.

Custer was based at Fort Abraham Lincoln before the battle of the Little Bighorn.
