Welcome to Fargo History

It is a pleasure for the NDSU Archives to bring you this website on the history of Fargo, North Dakota. John Caron, creator of this site, donated it to the Archives in 2004. Mr. Caron donated not only the website but also many of the images and artifacts that are featured on the website pages. The John Caron collection has been processed and is open for public research in the NDSU Archives reading room. The finding aid for the collection is also available online for review at our Institutional Repository.

Introduction by John Caron

"This site is about the history and images of Fargo, North Dakota from its founding in the 1870's until present. Descriptions and historical comments are provided on the pages with the images. The images are primarily from postcards but other sources include stereoviews and printed sources from before the turn of the century. I hope you enjoy exploring this site."
