Welcome to Edinburg, ND!

 

Northeast North Dakota is a well-kept secret, especially the little town of Edinburg. It sits on the edge of the fertile farmland of the Red River Valley and the prairies of the west. Edinburg has a population of about 190 people with the drive, dreams and heart of cities 10 times its size. Edinburg could be a "throw-back" to the 50's with its pristine cleanliness, manicured yards and well-kept homes, but it is most definitely planted in the 21st century with citizens who strive to keep Edinburg very much alive!

Edinburg is a great place to live!

 

This Week's news

DURING WWII N. ORDAHL, THE BANKER AT THE TIME, COMPILED, TYPED AND SENT A HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER TO THE LOCAL SERVICEMEN SERVING OUR COUNTRY. HE WANTED THE MEN AND WOMEN TO KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON BACK HOME. DAVID MONSON GAVE ME COPIES OF THE PAPERS CALLED "THE SERVICEMAN". I WILL SHARE A FEW TIDBITS FROM TIME TO TIME.

A FEW EXCERPTS FROM THE 1952 AUGUST SERVICEMAN

Lloyd Holt, brother of Otto Holt. visited the old home place for some time this summer. He recently returned to his own home on his ranch near Missoula, Montana. He found life with Otto lonely and feared he would "go nuts" if he were to stay during the winter.

Amund Nygard bought a $5000.00 combine from Ed Nygard at the start of the harvest season. He expected to do some custom combining and earn money towards the purchase price. One must be a capitalist to be a farmer these days. It takes a fortune to stock up with farm machinery.

When Ed Nygard took on the Massey Harris line of machinery, stocking up wih four or five combines, tractors and other machinery of that line we marvel at the prospect of being able to dispose of all that costly machinery. We marvel still more as we notice that the combins which were lined up on Ed's lot have all disappeared and have no doubt been sold. AND, this is one of our drouth years!

"THE SERVICEMAN" is sponsored by the Lutheran Brotherhood of Edinburg, Odalen and Union and edited by N. Ordahl.

Life is good in Edinburg.

This oxcart has stood on the corner of the Fire Department lot since 2007. It was in disrepair, so Loren Moe has been fixing it.
