I've driven past Lake Hosksins a time or two throughout my internship career and never realized that there was such a great monument to area settlers just a few feet from the main highway. Visited the monument today and was surprised to see all of the different names and rock types that make up this monument. It's definitely worth a... More

Lake Hoskins is a neat little historic site commemorating the first settlers of North Dakota in the late 19th century. I only wish they had expanded on it!

It represents the old-settler impulse to commemorate, being inscribed in 1938 to "Pioneers" of a half-century earlier. And all those names inscribed on the rocks composing the monument amount to a register of early settlement... More

There are other reasons for visiting Lake Hoskins, but what I love about the place is the forgotten historical monument located on its south shore, alongside Highway 11. This is the Hoskins Old Settlers Monument. It is in the middle of German-Russian Country, but the monument shows that the earliest settlers, in fact, were not necessarily German-Russians, but included many... More
