Communities 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 Team Industries and other industries, as well as the Audubon convenience store (Orton’s), Arochs Veterinary Service, DreamMakers Bath & Kitchen and Country Wood Products. Audubon also maintains a post office, a co-op elevator, a municipal liquor store, a bank (State




Bank & Trust of Audubon), a meat market (Audubon Meat Inc.), and the Audubon Zephyr Supper Club. Population: 492 (2009 est.)

Audubon Rescue: J.J. Fletcher, President. Same service area as fire department.

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. Besides its own community center, Callaway is also home to Immanuel Lutheran and Assumption Catholic churches, a volunteer fire department, Lions Club, Community Council, post office, municipal liquor store, Native Harvest and the Anishinaabe

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-wan-gag’’ : 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. Today, Detroit Lakes has an estimated population of 7,719 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, industrial parks and a variety of retail businesses. Detroit Lakes service organizations include: American Legion, Eagles, Jaycees, Kiwanis, Lions, Masons, Optimist Club, Rotary, VFW and Auxiliary, and Women of Today. Population: 8,131 (2008 est.)

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, Gary’s Furniture Store, the Frazee Municipal Liquor Store, Ketter’s Meat Market, and Homestead Building Supplies are just a few examples of Frazee’s thriving business district. The city also maintains a Web site at Population: 1,375 (2008 est.)

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 community cooperative, drug store, a hair salon, grocery store, laundromat, municipal liquor store, bank, city center, and public pool, the Lake Park community is home to a variety of churches, including the Lake Park Lutheran Church, the Gloria Dei Lutheran Parish and Eskjo Lutheran Church. The community also boasts three gas stations and a Lake Agassiz

Wolf Lake is located about three miles north of State Highway 87, in the corner of the Smoky Hills State Forest. Detroit Lakes is 32 miles due west of the village which was settled mainly as a logging camp site. After the great forests of Minnesota had been exploited by big lumbering companies, Wolf Lake turned to farming. Today, Wolf Lake maintains many organizations including: VFW, VFW Auxiliary, Lions Club, and Baseball Club as well as snowmobile, shooting and sportsmen’s clubs. Population: 38 (2008 estimate) Mayor: Cory Ylitalo City Council: John Aho, Janelle Lake, Rodney Aho and Vernette Gilbertson

HITTERDAL, located in Clay County, was incorporated as a village on April 1, 1918, and separated from the townships on May 3, 1919. It is named for a valley and lake in southern Norway. Among the first settlers were several people named Hitterdal. The town was named for Bendt O. Hitterdal, the original town proprietor. The post office began in 1887; M. J. Solum built a hardware and implement store on the first lot after the townsite was platted in 1896. ULEN, also located in Clay County, was named in honor of Ole Ulen, its first settler. The city of Ulen was established on part of his homestead and was incorporated as a village on Nov. 12, 1896. The post office was established in 1884.

WAUBUN, a city in Mahnomen County, has an Ojibwe name, meaning “the east,” “the morning,” and “the twilight of dawn.” It is spelled waban in Baraga’s Dictionary, and wabun by Longfellow in The Song of Hiawatha, with definition as the east wind. The city was incorporated as a village on Dec. 18, 1907. When the Soo Line built through the county in 1903-4, the general manager, Pennington, and his chief engineer, Thomas Green, named the stations as they moved the line north; all towns on the reservation had to have Indian names. The post office for this community was established in 1905 as Bement, changing to Waubun in 1906. PERHAM, located in Otter Tail County, is named after Josiah Perham, the first President of the Northern Pacific Railroad. The railroad arrived in Otter Tail County in 1871. A mercantile store was erected on the north side of the tracks the next year and Perham has been prospering ever since. Perham currently boasts of a

state-of-the-art community fitness and recreation center; a 27-hole, championship golf course. It is also the center for surrounding agriculture and tourism. VERGAS, located in Otter Tail County, is known as the “Home of the Loon,” the Minnesota State Bird. There is a giant 20 foot replica of the State Bird erected on the shore of Long Lake, in the center of City Park, which is also home to a public beach and picnic area. There are 25 lakes within a five-mile radius of Vergas. The community’s present name comes from one of four in the “V” series used to designate Soo Line sleeping cars that traveled between Minneapolis and Winnipeg. The post office began as Candor in 1904, the railroad station was Vergas, and the townsite was Altona, all names changing to Vergas in 1903. The community has a well-known bar and grill, a café, grocery store and a supper club just outside of town.

The Fireside, a northern Minnesota lakes area icon with house made, hand cut foods. An immense dose of style dominates a menu filled with classic, eclectic and inventive fare. Our stylish, chic and posh dining room is built around an open-air antique charcoal grill with a sensational view of Lake Detroit. Our lounge provides a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere with high back mahogany booths and rat-pack tunes. Our professional, friendly and efficient beverage staff will expertly concoct you the best cocktails in town. You may also choose from our thoughtfully selected wine list featuring more than 30 by the glass and 200 bottles.


The Fireside Pavilion is our dining option for those who like to feel the copasetic breeze coming off the lake in a casually elegant bug-free space. This comfortable and playful setting is the perfect stop by boat to enjoy dinner lakeside. Itís also the perfect setting for that romantic first date, a 10th wedding anniversary or a succulent dinner before an evening at the theater. The Fireside Pavilion can host your private event of up to 130 people. Utilizing the entire facility for a private event increases that count to 270 people.
