Nestled in far eastern North Dakota, in Grand Forks County, there resides a town (or a small city, depending on who you ask) with quite an interesting claim to fame: it’s got more historic buildings than any other city or town in the entire state. It offers glimpses into how life once was, and better still, many of these historic buildings, sites, and areas are still in use or operation today. Welcome to Grand Forks, North Dakota: the Peace Garden State’s most historic town.
