FLAXTON, N.D. — A World War I memorial and community building in Flaxton has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The register is the federal government’s list of properties it considers worthy of preservation and recognition.

The State Historical Society of North Dakota says the Burke County World War Memorial Hall was dedicated in 1931. It’s one of only seven World War I memorial buildings in the state built for government offices, community groups and events that’s still used for those purposes.
