Long Description:
The Chapel was originally built about 11 miles upriver, which is now under 150 feet of water. Stephen Riggs became a Missionary to the Sioux in Minnesota in 1837. His son, Thomas L. Riggs, was delegated in 1872 to serve the Teton Sioux on the Missouri. Thomas Riggs moved to Bogue, soon renamed Oahe Station, in 1874 to serve 300 Two Kettle and Sans Arc Sioux. Oahe, "a place to stand upon," became the religious center of a huge area.
