Posted: August 22, 2023 116

Fun facts: Established in 1874, it’s located five miles south of the Canadian border. A large Dutch population arrived here in the early 1900s. Dairy farming was the major industry then. Today, the retail industry is at the top. As of the 2010 census: The median age in the city was 38.6 years.— Story and photos by David Carlos
