West Fargo, North Dakota, has a population of over 29,000. West Fargo has a warm, friendly, small town atmosphere, complemented by metropolitan area advantages.
In 1917, Equity Cooperative Packing Company began construction of its plant in what was called West Fargo. In 1925, Armour and Company bought out the plant and housing for employees, which had been built north of the highway. Residents living there were asked to move from their homes, with many relocating south of the highway to form their own village.
