|Satellite view showing Bismarck, capital and second most populous community (after Fargo) of the State of North Dakota in the United States.
The city is located on the Missouri Plateau, at the east bank of the Missouri River, in the south-central part of North Dakota.
Bismarck was founded in 1872 at a site known as Missouri Crossing, because the Lewis and Clark party presumably crossed the Missouri river there. In 1873 the Northern Pacific Railway renamed the city Bismarck, in honor of German chancellor Otto von Bismarck. The city became North Dakota's capital when the state was created from Dakota Territory in 1889.
Today Bismarck has a population of about 67,000 inhabitants (in 2015).
Bismarck is home to North Dakota State Capitol, seat of the state's legislature, the North Dakota Heritage Center, the state's official history museum. The Bank of North Dakota, the only state-owned bank in the US.
In recent years, the city has benefitted from the oil activity in western North Dakota, leading to rapid growth and a robust economy. The capital is also a distribution and services center for the surrounding agriculture industry.
