The North Dakota Veteran's Cemetery was established by an act of the 1989 Legislative Assembly. The cemetery was opened in July 1992, and is operated by the Adjutant General of North Dakota. It is located 6.5 miles south of Mandan on Highway 1806 on a 70 acre tract of land in the southwest corner of Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park.
The Kiosk gravesite locator is available in the foyer of the visitors center.
The cemetery office is open Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:00pm., closed weekends and on State Holidays.
The cemetery grounds are open twenty four hours a day for grave visitation.
Burial Space: This cemetery has in ground burial space available to accommodate casketed and cremated remains. We just recently completed a columbarium (above ground niches for cremations) in Fall 2023.
Dedicated to the men and women who have served this State and Nation with unequaled distinction and honor. The State of North Dakota, in tribute to the devotion shown by our veterans in defense of the ideals and values we hold so precious, honors them by providing a location where they may find eternal peace in a setting rich with military history and quiet dignity.
The Memorial Day program is held on Memorial Day each year beginning at 12:00 pm central standard time.
