Mary Lee Nielson, head of the Rosebud Visitors Center in Valley City, ND (population 6,826) told me about the 63 mile byway's origin.It is formed along a glacial melt-water trench.

A lot of people and communities working together have resulted in the project becoming a $1.5 million investment that is bringing in tourists and breathing life into the region.

It was kind of a railroad RV," says Mary Lee Nielson, marketing coordinator for the Sheyenne River Valley National Scenic Byway and the Valley City Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The coach was in various railroad divisions before making its way back to the Dakota Division in Jamestown shortly before being decommissioned in 1931. The Rosebud was then moved to Beach where it was used as a vacation home by the John P. Reeve family.
In 1999, The Rosebud was acquired by the Barnes County Historical Society and in the summer of 2000, the coach was moved to Valley City and its restoration began. "We got it back to as close to original condition as possible," says Nielson.
"This is like you are walking through the Rosebud, with murals on the wall which look like the car," says Nielson.
The center also houses memorabilia related to the Rosebud and the railroad. "Our outdoor display shows the different rails and signage used by railroads over the years."
She says it is important to preserve railroad history for the city's visitors. "Dakota Territory was open for settlement by the railroad and things would have been a lot different if the railroad hadn't come through," says Nielson.
