Fargo, North Dakota
Fargo is the largest city in North Dakota with a population of about 96,000 people. It is the Cass County Seat in southeastern North Dakota. The city of Fargo was founded in 1871 as an early stopping point for steamboats on the Red River in the late 1800′s. The city was originally named “Centralia” but renamed “Fargo” in order of the Northern Pacific Railway director and Wells Fargo Express Company founder, William Fargo.
Ghosts and Hauntings on the Moorhead Train Tracks in Fargo, North Dakota:
The ghost of a woman with red, glowing eyes is said to haunt the Moorhead Train Tracks in Fargo. Locals claim that some homeless men said that she was dragged behind the train after trying to jump on and failing. Some say that her body was worn down to shreds and there was hardly anything left of her when the train finally stopped.
One person claims that the train, however, stopped at 12th and 20th Street in Moorhead and that there were many parts of her body left, though some were injured. We have not verified either stories to determine which if either of them is true.
