The Red River of the North flows northward 550 miles from its source in Breckenridge, Minnesota to Lake Winnipeg in Canada. The river winds through the hearts of cities including Fargo, Moorhead, and Grand Forks. The Red River Valley created the border between Minnesota and North Dakota. This river was a key trade route for the Hudson's Bay Company, and contributed to the settlement of British North America.
