Judge rules Pioneer Village museum can stay on North Dakota State Fairgrounds for now


MINOT, North Dakota — The Pioneer Village museum is staying on the North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot, at least for now

A judge has ruled that the Ward County Historical Society's village can stay until a court determines each side's rights in the matter.

The State Fair Association gave the historical society an eviction notice in January. The association wants the land the museum is on.

The historical society has argued that a contract drawn up in the 1960s gives it the right to remain on the land. The State Fair says the contract gives the society the right to have only one building on the land.
