What County is Moorhead?
The city of Moorhead is located east of the much larger Fargo in North Dakota. However, due to its cultural wealth, it is far more than just the eastern suburb of Fargo. Around Moorhead there was a strongly Norwegian-shaped settlement. In addition to the Hjemkomst Center, this is documented by the original replica of a Norwegian stave church. The Red River, border river to North Dakota, flows through one of the most fertile areas of the Earth.
The city of Breckenridge is located opposite the Wahpeton in North Dakota at the confluence of the Bois de Sioux River and the Otter Tail River, which together become the Red River of the North. The settlement of Crookston began in 1872, and in 1879 the settlement was declared a city. The immigration of Scandinavian and German people was a decisive factor. Today, the city is home to a university and a Roman Catholic bishop. Warren was settled in 1879, the town’s rights were granted to the settlement in 1892.
