Fargo, North Dakota

Fargo is the most populous city in the State of North Dakota, accounting for over 15% of the state population. Fargo is also the county seat of Cass County. According to the 2015 United States Census estimates, its population was 118,523.

For years the statue’s home was on a knoll on the east side of Island Park, looking toward the water like the original. Fargo’s replica is 1/19th of the original size.

It was moved to the current site in 1987, and the mayor anticipates her returning there soon.

She stands tall just off the Downtown Fargo Bike Path at the intersection of Main Ave and 2nd St. at the west end of the bridge.  She is a feature of the public circle on the bank of the Red River where she faces the bitter cold north wind from atop her granite pedestal.

UPDATE: 11/26/2019 by Dianna Baumann: The City of Fargo’s Statue of Liberty replica, donated many years ago by the Boy Scouts, was stolen off (July 2019) of its pedestal this summer.

UPDATE: 6/29/2020 a replacement has been installed after the original statue was stolen in July 2019. Here is a link for the replacement https://www.kvrr.com/2020/06/29/fargo-reveals-new-statue-of-liberty-at-veterans-memorial-bridge/
