Centrally located in North America, and just south of North Dakota's "Energy Corridor," this area is in the midst of economic growth, giving the area's 100,000 residents many opportunities. With new business prospects emerging daily, the only question that remains is, "Why aren't you here?"

Rich with history of exploration and adventure, the true birth of these sister cities was in the late 1800's as the Transcontinental Railroad was being built. More than an area of iron and steam, Bismarck-Mandan was a resting place for Lewis and Clark, as well as the final residence of Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and the 7th Cavalry before the Battle of Little Big Horn.

With innovation and inspiration imbedded in the soil, the residents of Bismarck-Mandan seem to work with those same ideals. We support a vibrant energy industry, two major medical facilities, a host of technical service companies and many other innovative businesses both large and small.

With an MSA surpassing 100,000 people, Bismarck-Mandan is moving from a big town to a small city. We have the jobs, retail and residential growth to prove it.
