Carrington, North Dakota
Proud to be American
Carrington is the first city in North Dakota
to show our patriotic
spirit by painting our Water Tower
Red-White & Blue
The painting was completed in June of 2003

Carrington is located in the central eastern portion of North Dakota. We are called the "Central City" because we are within a 150 mile radius from the 4 largest cities in North Dakota: Fargo, Bismarck, Grand Forks and Minot.
Carrington is a progressive mid-sized city of approximately 3000 residents. We are the commercial center of Foster County. Our community has developed into an active service center with over 150 businesses and professional services, growing industrial park, great schools and health care. Our rich agricultural heritage has made Carrington the safe and wholesome place that it is. Carrington is great place to live, work and raise a family with low crime rates, clean air, friendly neighbors, and an attractive environment .

Foster County is 644 square miles of land located in the center of North Dakota.
It is one of the smallest of the state's 53 counties, 18 miles by 36 miles in dimension. It is bordered by Eddy, Griggs, Stutsman and Wells counties.

Foster is divided into 18 townships with the seat of county government located in Carrington. It became a part of the United States when President Jefferson purchased a tract of land known as the Louisiana Purchase from France in 1803. Very little was known about the area until an expedition led by Lewis and Clark made the trip across what is now North Dakota looking for a passage to the Pacific Ocean.

Visitors coming to what is now Foster County found prairie lands and rolling plains covered with prairie grass which provided abundant food for the herds of buffalo, deer, antelope, fox, coyotes, and other wild animals that were found in the area. There were very few trees except along the James River and some other
smaller streams.
