Mandan is about to see big changes. An old lot sitting empty for years is being transformed into an entertainment center: The Railyard.
The name says a lot about the city's history.
Mandan City Administrator Jim Neubauer says, "Mandan is a railyard town, there's no getting around it. We've got the tracks going right through the center of town. You know, they've been a big part of this community ever since it was created."
