Welcome to Minot - The Magic City!

Minot was founded in 1886. The community became known as the “Magic City” because as the railroad was making its way through town, winter hit. The townspeople said the town went up so fast it was practically up overnight….like magic! That same feeling has been happening the past few years as an energy boom has hit the area. With projections of a population reaching 50,000 by 2020, the community is preparing with new housing, infrastructure, including a new airport, and recreational facilities. North Dakota is now number two in the nation in oil production. But Agriculture is still the state’s number one industry. It’s what the state is known for, the reason our ancestors came to North Dakota.
