Frontier Americana of Fargo presents extraordinary collectibles for enthusiasts of the old west. The gallery, established in 1997 by Jim Jasken, and Pete Erickson, exhibits a large collection of antiques, unique firearms, as well as an impressive collection of Americana. In 2005, Bob “Mike” Richard became a member of the team and is one of a handful of specialists in vintage sights offering hundreds of original examples.
This unique gallery consistently stocks a large selection of collectible firearms, Americana, (cowboy, Native American, trapper, buffalo hunter, CW & Indian Wars U.S. military) and western art (both classic & contemporary). They have had many unique items come through; such as the full set of horn furniture made from Long Horns or a Sharps Rifle that belonged to an officer at Fort Fetterman on the Boseman Trail. The Fort was named after William Judd Fetterman. The Fetterman Massacre, as the encounter became known, was second in notoriety only to Custer‘s disastrous defeat in 1876.
Whether you are interested in their large collection or would like your collection appraised, Frontier Americana of Fargo is there to serve their customers. Conveniently located in the heart of Fargo’s downtown district at 114 Broadway Suite G6 in the Black Building, Frontier Americana of Fargo is excited to see downtown blossom into an award-winning and vibrant neighborhood featuring galleries, museums, destination antique & boutique shops, and restaurants over the past decade.
