I am working on a book based in southern Manitoba. Manitobans from around Gretna, Manitoba enjoyed the recreation opportunities in Neche, North Dakota. I wonder if anyone has any information on the following:
1.Barnstormers- is there anyone with details of a biplane pilot that took people for rides at the cost of one cent per pound?
2. Barnstormers - does anyone have any details about the time Satchel Paige played ball in Neche? I believe it would have been around the early 1920s. I also believe the team he played with, was the New Jersey Colored Giants or the Jersey Colored Giants. Any details would be most welcome.
3. Buidings and structures - What were the prominent structures in Neche around the 1920s. Did Johnny's Bar exist at the time? What was it called? What other structures were there?

The archives in Minnesota are often at county buildings and historical societies.
