DescriptionFormerly the site of Arikara and Sioux villages, the city of Mobridge was founded in 1906. At that time, a bridge was being built across the Missouri River; the town's name originated when a telegrapher ended all his transmissions with the abbreviation “Mo. Bridge.”
The Oahe Dam has broadened the Missouri River into a lake about 2 miles wide at this location, which offers some of the state's best fishing..
