Welcome To Our City of Minot Website!

In the winter of 1886, when the Great Northern Railway ended the push through North Dakota, something magical happened.  A small city was born, and within just a few months, the population grew to over 5000.  Minot has been “The Magic City” ever since, and today, more than ever in our history, that magic is living on.

Minot is not only home to one of the nation’s best economies and job markets, we maintain a family-friendly atmosphere, low crime rate, and a very strong housing market.  We have a thriving arts community, top-notch schools, outdoor activities for every season, and so much more.  The growth that our area has seen as a result of the energy boom in western North Dakota has also brought many new shopping and entertainment options to our community.

If you’re already a part of our community, thank you. If you’re considering relocating your home or business to Minot, or simply thinking about a visit -- please do!  Once you’re here, you’ll know exactly why we’re so proud of our Magic City.
