Further Funding For “Fort Fargo” Finally Finds Feasible Financial Footing

A rare look inside the main bunker of Fort Fargo.

Fargo, ND – What many have been fighting for for forty four fruitless fortnights may soon finish with fruitional finality.

The remains of Fort Fargo, which was originally built at the beginning of Fargo’s war with Moorhead, will officially become a preserved historical site, right next to a major museum honoring those who fought in this famous battle.

Those who have been fighting for funding for the Fort Fargo Museum & Historical Site raised glasses to toast that the North Dakota Legislature finally voted in favor of committing public funds to this worthy project.

After a nearly fourteen year debate, the N.D. House voted to use forty million dollars from a combination of the state treasury and loans from the Bank of North Dakota to financially fund the costs of Fort Fargo.

If you feel that you have any historical artifacts possibly from the Fargo/Moorhead War that should be included in the new F/M War Museum, please contact the Fort Fargo Foundation for further instructions on what to do and how to do it.

In a stunning turn of events, the ND Legislature approved milk for  under-served children at milk break.

“Initially we felt these children were just out of luck, and they could just have water if¬†their parents can’t afford milk” commented a Representative. “With a billion dollar surplus we felt budget allocations were best served in other important areas such as oil and infrastructure.

These concepts are the future. Although these remain our top priorities, we felt it was in the best interest of our hearts for these kids to have milk,” said another Representative.

Yes folks, not only did the Grinch’s heart grow two sizes so did those of the ND Legislature.
