Gassman Coulee - Tent Town

Tent Town – Minot Early rival – in late 1886 Minot seemed to have a rival city in Tent Town…. This was the temporary camp set up at the Gasman Coulee near the railroad bridge that was being built. Rumor had it that the railroad planned to build a city at the second crossing of the Mouse River. The first crossing of the Mouse was near Towner. Many thought the city would be “at the big bridge”. Some started building make shift wooden buildings in anticipation of the city growing there. The decision to establish the city at the Minot location had been made but kept secret for a while. When word got out, the city of Minot grew and Tent Town remained through the construction of the bridge as many workers wanted to live close to the job site.

Since, it was not easy for to make special arrangements for throwing a party in outdoors, so I decided to call up the leading tent and marquee hire service provider in Johannesburg and provided them the details of the number of expected guests, and the availability of space, and they assisted me in doing all the necessary preparations, which included the decoration of party venue in an excellent manner.

  2. The system underwent successful multi-movement testing at various speeds, ranging from 1 to 50 inches per second, as well as numerous seismic simulators - with no observed damage. Extreme tension applied to the joint during the tests created no significant gapping, leaving bridges not just intact, but passable after a seismic event.
