DescriptionEast Grand Forks and its sister city Grand Forks, N.D., across the Red River of the North, form the commercial hub of northeastern North Dakota, an agricultural processing center for potatoes, sugar beets and wheat. Traditionally a meeting place because of its location at the fork of two rivers, East Grand Forks was a Native American trading site long before oxcarts, steamboats and railroads took advantage of the location to transport goods.
