Downtown Fargo Featured In Fargo Library’s History Hunt Project

The Fargo Public Library rolled out a historical scavenger hunt earlier this month as part of the “Build a Better World” Summer Reading Program, featuring landmark buildings in downtown Fargo. Participants can take a step back in time this summer by taking part in the Fargo History Hunt through August 5.

To participate, pick up a map at any Fargo Public Library location and follow the trail to 12 of downtown Fargo’s historic buildings. Use the clues on the map to find pieces of a puzzle and answers to questions about each site.

Once the puzzle is complete, participants can answer the questions and return to the Fargo Public Library to be entered into a grand prize drawing. The puzzle is yours to keep. The Fargo History Hunt is held in partnership with the FM Heritage Society and is made possible through support from the Friends of the Fargo Public Library. All ages are invited to participate.  One entry per person. Please note that some buildings have irregular hours. For details, contact Librarian Cindy Mason at the Children’s Services Desk at 701.241.1495 or email

Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public. Children age 9 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. For more information regarding the Fargo Public Library and a complete list of upcoming Summer Reading Program events, call 701.241.1472 or visit
