Welcome to Fargo

You might recognize our name from the 1996 film, Fargo, or hit FX series featuring thick Midwestern accents, white barren landscape, and the infamous woodchipper scene (we have the original on display!). While the accents are mildly accurate and it is pretty flat, everything else is completely unexpected – or as we like to call it, North of Normal. Come see for yourself.

What makes Fargo North of Normal? The People!

For a Midwestern city, Fargo’s a little off-center.

You know it the moment you hit the ground. You sense it in the air, feel it on the prairie wind. This place is different. Not like anywhere you’ve been before. It’s unfamiliar ground, but it’s ground you want to spend time on. Welcome to Fargo, a place that sets the bar far above the norm.
