Casselton [1] is a town of 1,855 people in Cass County, in the Red River Valley area of North Dakota. Its coordinates are Latitude 46.90 N & Longitude 97.21 W.

Understand[edit]

Casselton is not quite a suburb of Fargo, but it is close enough for shopping and entertainment. In its early days it was called "the Nursery", "Goose Creek" and "Swan Creek", after the stream that ran through the area. In 1876, the railroad established a station called Casstown, after George Cass, president of the Northern Pacific Railway. The town of Casselton was incorporated and its post office established in 1876.
