About Moorhead, MN

Moorhead, the second-largest city in the Fargo-Moorhead MSA and the largest in northwest Minnesota, gives residents a suburban, small-town feeling with access to urban amenities. The Red River of the North separates the two cities and brought this former frontier town's earliest settlers in the late 1870s. Today, its transportation assets, excellent schools, and parks facilities continue to draw new businesses and residents to the seat of Clay County.
