The Biesterfeldt Site (32RM1) is an archaeological site near Lisbon, North Dakota, United States, located along the Sheyenne River. Excavation in 1938 suggested that a village of the Cheyenne tribe occupied the site in the late 18th century.[2] In 1980, the site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of its archaeological significance.[1]
