  • Develop living history of pioneer life through the use of restored community buildings on the site of the Pioneer Heritage Center.
  • Develop the Pioneer Heritage Center as a northeastern North Dakota educational and research facility for genealogy, settlement era history and natural history.
  • Work in cooperation with the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department to attract tourism to northeastern North Dakota.
  • Develop the Pioneer Heritage Center as a social and cultural meeting place for area people.
