About

Located along the Red River of the North, where the Northern Pacific Railroad crosses from Minnesota, is North Dakota's largest city, Fargo. In the beginning, it was a rough and rowdy frontier town, with its fair share of bordellos and saloons. In 1876, the population was only 600. But Fargo grew rapidly as settlers responded to the promise of cheap, fertile farmland in the Red River Valley. By 1892, it was a city of more than 8,000 inhabitants; the tents and shanties of earlier days had been replaced mainly by wood-frame buildings. Today, Fargo's population is more than 125,000, with a metropolitan population nearly twice that size.
