Greetings: On behalf of the City Council and all of the citizens of Detroit Lakes I would like to extend a warm welcome to our city. We are located just 40 minutes east of Fargo-Moorhead in beautiful Minnesota lake country. With the combination of adjacent prairie, abundant woodlands and lakes it makes an ideal place to live and work. In addition to the wonderful setting, Detroit Lakes features a top rated school system, excellent medical facilities, adequate housing and numerous parks and recreational facilities. Our economic base is solid and stable with a good mix of manufacturing, tourism, agriculture and retail. In addition, we are a regional hub for many service type businesses. Detroit Lakes has achieved the status of “Minnesota Star City” due to our many economic development programs. Detroit Lakes is the home to the Northwest Water Carnival, Pine to Palm Golf Tournament, Polar Fest and ​the ​Detroit Mountain Recreation Area! In fact, our community averages one special event per week throughout the year. With the many attractions offered by Detroit Lakes, I encourage you to take some time to explore our website and its links. One thing you don’t want to miss is our famous mile long city beach! If there is anything I can do to help you become better acquainted with Detroit Lakes, please give me a call or an e-mail. Sincerely, Matt Brenk, Mayor 218.234.7040 mbrenk@cityofdetroitlakes.com

14 Communities County wide

AUDUBON The city of Audubon is located on Highway 10 approximately 40 miles east of Fargo, ND, and 210 miles northwest of Minneapolis, MN. Situated in the southwest corner of Becker County, it developed as a result of the 1871 expansion of the Northern Pacific Railroad. Audubon was established as a community in 1873; it was settled mainly by farmers of Scandinavian descent. The town was named after the great American naturalist and artist, James A. Audubon. During an early tour of the “Audubon’’ branch of the NP line, a passenger, Audubon’s niece, commented on the beauty of the lily-covered prairie and asked that if a railroad station were ever built there, that it be named after her uncle. While searching for a township name, the Audubon name suggestion seemed to stick, and on Jan. 2, 1881, it became the official town name. Today, Audubon is home to not only Lake Park-Audubon Elementary School, but also Team Industries and other businesses, such as the Orton’s convenience store, Aurochs Veterinary Service, JCS Cabinetry & Design, Country Wood Products and TBS Express. Audubon also maintains a post office, a co-op elevator, a liquor store and a meat market — Audubon Meats, Inc.

439-6582 Audubon’s volunteer fire department provides service for Audubon City and the townships of Lake Eunice, Audubon and a portion of Hamden Township. Audubon Rescue: Megan Pinke, President Audubon Rescue serves the same area as the fire department.

CALLAWAY Callaway is located about 12 miles north of Detroit Lakes on Highway 59, approximately 45 air miles east of Fargo. It’s situated in Becker’s northwest corner, along the Soo Line Railroad’s “Glenwood route’’ — a section of track between Winnipeg and Minneapolis. The small farming communities of Richwood and Westbury lie within a 5 mile radius of Callaway. As the Soo Line pushed northward in 1903, the Callaway community developed. Callaway’s rich farmland attracted many early Scandinavian settlers who were interested in farming its fertile tracts of land. Today, agriculture remains Callaway’s main economic resource, but the city is also home to an Event Center, as well as both Beautiful Savior Lutheran and Assumption Catholic churches, a volunteer fire department, Lions Club, post office, municipal liquor store, Midwest Bank branch office, Native Harvest, Noah’s Insurance, On the Go Convenience Store, Cenex Harvest States elevator and Anderson Ag Services.

DETROIT LAKES Detroit Lakes was originally home of the Sioux, until the Chippewa pushed them westward. During the mid 1800s, Detroit Lakes was a favorite resting place for travelers of the Red River Oxcart Trail, a 400 mile path from Winnipeg to St. Paul. For many years, the resting place was called “Ga-ia-wa-wangag’’ : a Chippewa name meaning, “Lake in which there is a crossing in a sandy place.’’ Settlers, having trouble pronouncing that name, preferred a traveling French priest’s description of the sandy place; he called it “Detroit,’’ using the French word for sand bar. The name stuck. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, Detroit Lakes had an estimated population of 8,569 residents. Today, Detroit Lakes is an important agricultural area; it is also the center of a thriving “412

Lakes’’ tourism district. Besides providing a strong educational system for its residents, Detroit Lakes is home to many different churches, two industrial parks and a variety of retail businesses. Detroit Lakes service organizations include: American Legion (and Auxiliary), Eagles, Jaycees, Kiwanis, Lions, Masons, two Rotary clubs, and the VFW and its Auxiliary.

Rescue Squad: Tyler Trieglaff, President Frazee’s Rescue Squad serves the same area as the fire department.

FRAZEE The city of Frazee is located at the junction of Highway 10 and Minnesota State Highway 87, approximately in the center of Becker County’s southernmost border; it is approximately 10 miles southeast of Detroit Lakes; 55 miles east of Fargo, and 195 miles northwest of Minneapolis. Frazee was settled in 1868, earning it the distinction of being the first area settled in Becker County. When the Hobart Depot and Weymouth Hotel moved to Frazee in 1874, the city of Frazee developed quickly. (It was said the food at the Weymouth was so good, that the NP Line scheduled regular stops to partake in its culinary delights.) The combination of the depot, a lucrative flour mill, and a booming logging industry, Frazee was Becker County’s largest city until the logging “boom’’ fizzled out at the turn of the century. At its peak, however, Frazee’s population climbed a little over 2000 in the late 1880s. Today, Frazee is home to many businesses. Daggett Trucking, the Frazee Municipal Liquor Store, Frazee Event Center, Ketter’s Meat Market, and O.K. Lumber are just a few examples of Frazee’s thriving business district.

LAKE PARK The city of Lake Park is located on Highway 10 approximately 35 miles east of Fargo and 215 miles northwest of Minneapolis. With gentle rolling hills and an elevation of 1270 ft., Lake Park is a fertile farm area producing grain, potatoes, and livestock. Lake Park was named for a beautiful lake which used to be located on the original townsite. In the early 1870s, this lake was drained, however, to allow for the building of the NP Railroad. Although the lake was lost forever, the railroad stimulated Lake Park’s growth as settlers took advantage of its easy transportation to the region. Today, Lake Park is home to many area businesses. Besides a health clinic, community cooperative, hair salon, grocery store, laundromat, municipal liquor store, bank, city center, and public pool, the Lake Park community includes a variety of churches, including St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Lake Park Lutheran Church and Eskjo Lutheran Church. The community also boasts three gas stations, storage units, businesses including Dollar General, Tools-NMore and ahandful of insurance agencies as well as a Lake Agassiz Regional Library LINK site. It is also home to Lake Park-Audubon High School.

Winter, spring, summer, fall… it’s always the season for fun in Becker County Detroit Lakes, a hive of activity year-round Winter, spring, summer or fall — regardless of the time of year, Detroit Lakes plays host to a wide assortment of entertaining activities, events and festivals each January through December. Regardless of the season, there are always trails to be found at Sucker Creek and Dunton Locks, for hiking, cross country skiing or simply enjoying nature up close and personal. There are also lots of quaint shopping boutiques and stores as well as several coffee shops for you to stop, rest and meet some friends for a hot cup of java, espresso or an iced beverage of your choice — and some of them have some pretty tasty food as well. During the winter, a village of fish houses takes over Big and Little Detroit lakes, and snowmobilers will find over

250 miles of groomed trails winding their way through the woods and fields of Becker County. At the 200-acre Detroit Mountain Recreation Area (www. detroitmountain.com), located just a few short miles southeast of Detroit Lakes, guests can enjoy a full range of winter activities, from downhill and cross country skiing to tubing, fat bike trails and even a terrain park to try out your snowboarding and slope style skiing skills. Maplelag Resort (www.maplelag. com), located between Callaway and Richwood, offers almost 45 miles of cross country skiing and snow shoeing trails, an ice skating rink and sliding hill, and is also home to the Moosejaw Old-Time Dance, Clogging & Music Weekend (March 13-15, 2020).

Other area resorts offering snowmobiling, ice fishing, skiing and snow shoeing activities during the winter months include Rainbow Resort near Waubun (www.rainbowresort. com), Pinehurst Resort outside Naytahwaush (www.pinehurstmn. com) and Ice Cracking Lodge & Resort (www.icecrackinglodge.com) in rural Ponsford. Detroit Lakes’ annual Polar Fest celebration, which usually gets underway during the second weekend in February, offers 10 days of winter fun, from ice tee golfing to frozen fireworks to a “Freeze Your Buns Run” and the infamous Polar Fest Plunge, in which foolhardy area residents plunge into the arctic waters of Little Detroit Lake to raise funds for the local Boys & Girls Club. Visit polarfestdl.com for a GUIDE TO BECKER COUNTY 2020 | 69


complete schedule of events as well as photos from various fest activities and a merchandise store featuring a variety of Polar Fest 2020 winter gear (hats, scarves, etc.) and memorabilia for sale. Once the ice is off the lakes and the snow has melted, area anglers begin to turn their thoughts to the annual Minnesota walleye and bass fishing opener, which will take place on May 9 this year. Will the weather be friendly for anglers? Will the boat motor start? Will the bass and walleyes bite? Is there enough bait? Those questions will once again be on the minds of anglers and bait dealers as they ready for the season. Most answers won’t be known until shortly after Friday turns into Saturday at the stroke of midnight, when anglers can get onto their favorite lakes once more — and legally keep the northern pike, bass, walleyes and lake trout they catch. Spring months can also find lakes area residents and visitors alike looking through the treetops for that one-of-a kind bird — during the 23rd Annual Detroit Lakes Festival of Birds, May 14-16 — or searching through the downtown booths at the Street Faire at the Lakes, May 29-30, for the perfect handcrafted treasure.

In addition, springtime also offers a last chance to catch your breath before the never-ending march of summer events begins. Summer, which doubles the population of Detroit Lakes each year, brings iconic celebrations like the Northwest Water Carnival, which has been in existence for over eight decades now, as well as the Becker County Fair (celebrating its 127th anniversary in 2020) and the Pine to Palm Golf Tournament (established 89 years ago). There are also endless hiking, biking, swimming, boating and of course, golfing opportunities available for visitors at any time, from Memorial Day to Labor Day and on into the fall months. Detroit Lakes boasts 412 lakes within 25 miles, including two inside its city limits — Big and Little Detroit — as well as a mile-long city beach that is one of the community’s biggest summer attractions. In addition, the county boasts more than a half dozen golf courses, with most of them to be found within a 20-minute drive of DL. As previously mentioned, Dunton Locks and Sucker Creek provide plenty of opportunities for hiking and exploring, as does Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge. Maplewood and Itasca

state parks are also just a short drive or bike ride away. History buffs may want to stroll through the Veterans Memorial Park in downtown Detroit Lakes (at the junction of Washington Avenue and Highway 10), which contains plaques and monuments celebrating area war veterans past and present; the Grand Army of the Republic Park located just a couple blocks north of Highway 10 on Washington Avenue, which is one of just a handful of GAR parks still in existence across the USA; and Oak Grove Cemetery, located just north of town on Highway 59, which boasts a Civil War monument erected more than a century ago. And be sure to check out the Becker County Museum at 714 Summit Avenue (across the parking lot from the DLCCC) — which is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Tuesday through Saturday — where you can view the plans for the new museum building, scheduled to begin construction this fall. Labor Day weekend brings two popular area events, the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion (Sept. 4-7), which has been bringing steam engine lovers and old-school farming enthusiasts to the tiny community of Rollag (www.rollag. com) for more than six decades now, and the Laddies Loppet Mountain Bike Stage Race at Maplelag (Sept. 5-6), now entering its 30th year. Over at Richwood Winery, located just to the east of the tiny hamlet of Richwood (17 miles north of Detroit Lakes), guests can sample a variety of vintages while relaxing in the bucolic setting. The winery has live music every weekend through the summer months, and also hosts several fun events including the Summer Solstice


Festival (June 20); Toast to Tamarac (Sept. 11), a benefit for the nearby Refuge hosted by the Friends of Tamarac Refuge (see www. tamaracfriends.org for more info); and the Grape Stomp (Sept. 12), which has become a fall tradition. Speaking of Tamarac Refuge, as the leaves begin showing their beautiful fall colors and the air turns crisp and cool, Tamarac’s new Discovery Center shifts into a higher gear, playing host to well over 3,000 area grade school students between September and May. The environmental education facility, which officially opened to the public in July 2015, offers both indoor and outdoor learning opportunities with a staff of experienced and well trained volunteers from the Friends organization. Tamarac also hosts its annual fall festival on Sept. 26, with guests invited to explore the confines of the Refuge by bus, by car or on foot, as well as participating in a series of organized, environmentally-themed activities for the whole family — all free of charge, though food, memorabilia and other amenities are available for purchase at the festival site as well as in the gift shop at the environmentally friendly Visitor’s Center, which was renovated in 2014 to

Internet

incorporate geothermal heating and solar power. In addition, fall brings the 25th Annual Dick Beardsley Run (Sept. 12) and Damien Fall Home Tour (Oct. 3) in Detroit Lakes, along with Lake Park’s popular Pumpkin Fest (Sept. 26), and the Hairy Man 5K in Vergas (Oct. 3), an homage to the legendary, Bigfoot-like Hairy Man that is said to wander the Vergas trails at night. And that’s not even mentioning Leaf Days at Maplewood State Park (Sept. 26-27 and Oct. 3-4), along with the many other opportunities for viewing the area’s beautiful fall colors in September and October. As fall gives way to winter, the Historic Holmes Theatre’s new season ramps up with its annual Holmes Art Show in November, which brings dozens of area artisans to the Holmes Ballroom during the day, while offering a variety of live music in the main theater at night. Come Thanksgiving weekend, Holy Rosary Church in Detroit Lakes hosts its Thanksgiving Feast on Nov. 26, the same day that Lake Park’s annual Parade of Trees opens at the American Legion, running through Sunday, Nov. 29. The Friday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 29, is also opening day at Detroit

TV

Mountain, or “White Friday” as the staff likes to call it. Then on Monday, Nov. 30, downtown Detroit Lakes officially gets lit up for the holidays with Santa’s Grand Parade of Lights. December brings a plethora of holiday celebrations both public and private to the lakes area, leading up to Candles

& Carols (Trinity Lutheran Church, Detroit Lakes, Dec. 20); Christmas At Our House (First Lutheran Church, Detroit Lakes, Dec. 25) and the annual New Year’s Eve Bash at the Detroit Lakes Community & Cultural Center (Dec. 31). As Detroit Lakes’ Chamber of Commerce likes to say, it’s all here, all year.
