Fargo Public Library Collection

fpl00008In 1998 the Fargo Public Library entrusted its historical photographs with the NDSU Institute for Regional Studies Archives where the original images are now permanently preserved. The Fargo Public Library and Institute are pleased to make this collection available for public use via Digital Horizons. The collection documents many aspects of Fargo life from the late nineteenth century to mid-twentieth century. A recent addition to the collection is a wonderful series of color slides documenting the famous 1957 Fargo tornado, taken & donated by Samuel G. Chapman.
