Camp Hancock State Historic Site

This site preserves part of a military post established as Camp Creeley in 1872 to provide protection for work gangs building the Northern Pacific Railroad. The camp's name was changed to Camp Hancock in 1873. A log headquarters building still stands on the site. It has been enlarged and remodeled several times and the logs have been concealed by clapboard siding.
