  • STANTON, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota quarry where American Indians used crude tools to uncover the flint they refined into arrowheads and other implements is being formally dedicated as a National Historic Landmark.
    The Bismarck Tribune reports that a ceremony is set Saturday at the Lynch Knife River Flint Quarry, on land near Stanton owned by Allen and Gail Lynch. It received landmark status last year and on Saturday will officially become the sixth National Historic Landmark in North Dakota.
    Mandan and Hidatsa villages along the Knife and Missouri rivers were an important trading hub years ago, and flint from the quarry was a valuable trading commodity.
