The lives of prairie pioneers are showcased at the Frontier Village, with original prairie town buildings housing many frontier antiques and artefacts. Features of the village include the Kirkpatrick Gallery, the Louis L'Amour Writer's Shack and outdoor amphitheatre, as well as stagecoach and pony rides. The National Buffalo Museum has a buffalo herd on its property with three albino bison: White Cloud, Dakota Miracle and Dakota Legend. Native Americans traditionally hold the white buffalo as sacred and they are extremely rare.
