Bismarck is the capital of North Dakota and the second largest city in the state after Fargo. The population is around 103,000. The city was founded in 1872 and has been the capital of North Dakota since it became a state in 1889. When the city was founded, the first name it had was Edwinton, after a man named Edwin Johnson who was an engineer for Northern Pacific Railway. The name of the city was changed in 1873 to honor a German Chancellor Otto van Bismarck who attracted German immigrants to the area.1 However, it was when gold was discovered in the Black Hills in 1874 that people really started to settle in Bismarck. The city is a great place to settle because it sits on the Missouri Plateau which sits right on the banks of the Missouri River. The city Mandan is directly across from Bismarck which makes up the metropolitan area of Bismarck and Mandan.
