“Great History Behind This Cabin”

Abbie Gardner Cabin
Reviewed 16 September 2016

I never knew about the Indian Uprising, and how the people lived around this lake and Spirit Lake. It is nice to see that they have small places like this to learn.

This is a great educational opportunity at the lake. The movie inside the visitor center was interesting and informative. The man working was very knowledgeable.

Sioux Indian artifacts & Gardner log cabin that tells the story of the Spirit Lake massacre. Always someone there who knows the area well. Take the children.

In order to complete the lakes region experience, this site must be visited. The Spirit Lake massacre was not only devastating for the settlers but also for the native Americans who suffered much as a result of this invasion into their homeland, causing them to fight back, as any of us would if OUR homes and way of life were being seized!

Fun place to experience the Spirit Lake Massacre on you own time. Learn how the Indians massacred the early settlers there while talking the women hostage.
