MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Officials are planning a ceremony on Sunday to rededicate the Custer House at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park south of Mandan.

The replica of the Fort Abraham Lincoln Commanding Officers Quarters was dedicated 25 years ago. It’s become a popular visitor attraction.

It’s called the Custer House because the original was home to Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer before he and the Seventh Cavalry rode out on their ill-fated expedition against the Sioux at the Little Big Horn.

Sunday’s ceremony is part of the three-day Great Western Exposition at the park this weekend. State Parks Director Mark Zimmerman and Tourism Director Sara Otte Coleman are scheduled speakers. There is a $15 fee for teenagers and adults to attend the Expo.
