The Flint Store and Post Office
The Flint Store and Post Ofice was built on this site in 1895. It was
named after Moses E. Flint, an early homesteader. Mr. Flint served as
a teamster with General Custer on the 1876 campaign against the Sioux
which ended with the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Flint was located
on a mail route from the old river town of LaGrace (Campbell County seat from 1884 to 1888).
Mail was carried on horseback twice weekly. The store also served as
a school classroom.

The store was started by the five Parrott brothers and operated by
their mother Mrs. Sara Parrott. The Parrott family moved to the area
in 1884 and established homesteads on both sides of the present state border.

In 1901 the Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Sault Saint Marie railroad, commonly
known as the Soo Line, built a branch into Campbell County from a junction
with their main line at Wishek North Dakota.
