Community InformationEdinburg is centrally located in Walsh County, governed by home-rule charter, and has a population of 200-225 people with well-kept homes and attractive yards.
The city park was established in 1910 by the Civic League. It covers an entire block along the highway and is beautifully groomed with attractive trees, shrubs, and flowerbeds. A museum, bandstand, and ample playground equipment make for ideal family gatherings, picnics, and celebrations.
Edinburg Fire Department is one of the best in the area with equipment including one big pumper, a 4-wheel drive pick-up with pumper, a 2500 gallon tanker truck with a turrent and another tanker truck with 1500 gallon capacity. The department stems from the Edinburg Fire Company which was organized in 1909 and has grown in membership, territory and especially in up-to-date fire-fighting equipment.
In the mid 1800's ox carts laden with furs traveled along the west edge of Edinburg on their way from Winnipeg to St. Paul when it became necessary to avoid the muddy trails near the Red River. Today large semi-trucks and railroad cars transport potatoes, cattle, wheat, and other grains grown in abundance by the farmers in our mainly agricultural area.
Edinburg is a GREAT place to live.
Beautiful Welcome Sign coming into Edinburg on Highway 32 from the south
We would like to welcome you with new streetlights, banners, and well-kept business fronts when you "cruise" into Edinburg from north or south on ND Highway #32. Our hanging flower baskets were beautiful this past summer along with the planters on the Main Street sidewalks. Come visit us soon - we love to have people come to Edinburg!
