Visible for miles, you can’t miss the famous landmark of New Salem, ND. Salem Sue, the worlds largest
Holstein cow, stands 38 feet tall and was built in 1974 as a tribute to the area’s dairy industry. If you need
a stretch break, it’s just off the interstate and easy to access, so stop for a closer look. Drop some change
in the donation box at the entrance gate to help maintain this wonder for years to come.

St. Marie Water Tower
St. Marie, MT

St Marie is the site of the former Glasgow Air Force Base and is considered Montana’s premier Atomic
Age ghost city. Decommissioned in the mid 70’s, most of the town has fallen into the perfect setting for any modern horror/sci-fi movie. A few diehard residents still call the old base housing home and the Boeing Company purchased the main base hangers and the runway and use it for various testing and training purposes. The Boeing section is strictly off limits but a drive through the housing areas to find the water tower gives you the full “Atomic Zombie” experience.

Saint Marie Bonus Point – Old Merry Go Round

GPS: 48.40603143814502, -106.53169820453485

Installed during the original airbase build out in the 1950’s, this is the smoothest spinning Merry Go Round
in existence! A model of post war US Army engineering that still spins without a sound or wobble to this
day. Requires a bit of exploring to find, but the trip through the extra creepy abandon neighborhood makes it
worth it. Just be respectful of the area and tread at your own risk.

Peck’s Rex Dinosaur – Fort Peck Interpretive Center
Fort Peck, MT

A life size, full skeleton cast of the terrifying Tyrannosaurus “Peck” Rex unearthed just 20 mile southeast
of Fort Peck. See remains of other Cretaceous Sea creatures that thankfully don’t live in the lake today.
Don’t think I would go out on the ice if creatures like them were swimming below.
Its also worth taking in the wonderful historic displays that showcase the building of Fort Peck Dam.
Authorized by President Roosevelt in 1933, the construction of Fort Peck Dam was a project of hope to a
nation in the midst of the Great Depression.

Middle of Nowhere Sign

Erected in 2018 after Glasgow was named the most isolated town in the contiguous United States. Not a
surprise to you after the butt-numbing drive to get here for this event. So take a selfie with the sign and
prove to your friends and family that you’ve really been to the “Middle of Nowhere”.

Read the Washington Post article that explains the how “Middle of Nowhere” came to be.
