Jim Hill and Great Northern Pt.1


James "Jim" Hill and the Great Northern railroad were responsible for developing farms and towns in northern North Dakota. By 1887 he and his partners had taken the railroad as far as Minot. Jim Hill liked to go to where the tracks were being built, meet the townspeople and farmers, and decide where to build towns and depots. (from North Dakota Studies)
