Welcome To Our City of Minot Website!
Minot is the fourth-largest community in North Dakota. It was founded in 1887 as the Great Northern Railway made its way through the prairie.
Minot is nicknamed the "Magic City" because of its growth during the early years of the 20th century. It is a major center for commerce, health care, finance, agribusiness, education, industry, transportation and recreation.
Residents benefit from a community system that works: quality education including Minot State University; a low crime rate; a clean environment; an active arts community; plenty of recreational activities and a reasonable cost of living. Minot residents are proud of our standard of living, friendly people, clean environment and small town values.
Minot encompasses approximately 15 square miles of land representing the very best of both worlds - the technology and cultural opportunities of a big city, and the friendliness and security of a small town.
