The City of Plaza is home to approximately 200 residents.  We offer all your basic needs in a quiet, friendly rural town. 

We also have the Plaza Museum, which has hundreds of exhibits that experience the past.   We are close to great outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing, camping and swimming, as well as our neighboring Rock Museum in Parshall and Four Bears Casino in New Town. 

We have many organizations that you can get involved with to serve the community and the growth of our youth.   We welcome you to our city and thank you for visiting.   


The Pat  Sweeney homestead was purchased by the town site company for $3000 and the lots were sold July 20, 1906, which is the date we celebrate our birth.  The Pioneer Bank purchased the first lot.  Mr. Sheldrick did the platting of the town site of Plaza.  The town is laid out with a public square in the center of town and no business lots were to be sold on this square.  The business places were to extend around the whole square.  By September 1906 there were 78 lots and 51 businesses either building or planning to build in the Village of Plaza….the end of the Soo Line.   Indians came in from the Reservation to trade and bring their sick to be treated by doctors here.

The first celebration came up to the expectations of every visitor.  It was the greatest event of its kind ever pulled off in North Dakota.  Fully two thousand people were in attendance including these events:  Parade, Cornet Band, Horse Races, Baseball, Indian War Dance, Dance in Pavilion, Bronc Riding, Senator Hansbrough Address, Foot Race, Tug of War and Banquet at Hotel Plaza.   The Indian War Dance was held west of town where about 200 Indians drove in from the reservation to take part in the celebration.
