About Northwood
Northwood is located in Grand Forks County North Dakota, 35 miles SW of Grand Forks.

It's part of the "Grand Forks, ND-MN Metropolitan Statistical Area" or "Greater Grand Forks."

Northwood was established in 1884 by primarily Norwegian immigrants from Northwood, Iowa. It is surrounded by some of the most fertile farmland in the world in the heart of the Red River Valley. We have a lush and often bumpy history, but it has made our town all the more resilient.
