Highway 21 Treasure Hunt
June 20-21, 2014
The Highway 21 Treasure Hunt will be held Friday and Saturday, June 20-21,
The annual event is held each June, as communities along Highway 21 hold
citywide rummage sales.
Participating communities include Flasher, Carson, Elgin, New Leipzig,
Mott, Regent and New England. The Highway 21 Treasure Hunt will be held
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m MT both days.
Now is a good time to start planning your sale and gathering items,
according to coordinator Luann Dart.
“Finding a location to hold your sale and marking your items now will
relieve the stress of doing those preparations this summer,” Dart said.
The event draws hundreds of visitors into the area each summer and has
received national attention.
“The area is already receiving telephone calls from folks planning
vacation time so they can attend this year’s event,” Dart said.
“We hope to have some great rummage sales to continue to attract
visitors,” Dart said.
The Highway 21 Treasure Hunt is a North Dakota Legendary Event.
For more information, please contact Dart at 584-2172.

"The Small Friendly German Town On The Dakota Prairie"
The name Leipzig dates back to early 1015 in Germany. The Slavic
word means “a settlement by the lime trees.” In 1813, the Emperor of Austria wanted
to establish German colonies in Bessarabia.
Many immigrants from Eastern Europe moved onward & settled in the colonies
that were established. Fifteen families of Leipzigers came by trains to the colony of
Leipzig, settling there in 1843.
In the latter 1800's many colonists saw better opportunities in
America. The Leipzigers from Leipzig, Bessarabia came to America & started a
settlement named Leipzig, in Grant County, in 1896.
The one problem for the settlers was that they were too far from the railroads.
So in 1910, when the Northern Pacific Railroad was constructed 11 miles
southwest of Leipzig, the German-Russians moved down to the railroad &
established there the settlement that was to become New Leipzig.
