Dilworth, Minnesota, is located in Clay County, outside of Moorhead.
It was originally named Richardson and was established as a station by the Northern Pacific Railroad in 1883. The name was changed from Richardson to Dilworth in honor of a railroad official Joseph Dilworth of Pittsburgh, who was also a coffee importer and director of the Northern Pacific from 1875 to 1881. Dilworth was considered as a small station up until 1906 when it was chosen to reduce the crowding of the Northern Pacific sites in Fargo.
Dilworth is well known for its beautiful small town feel, good school district, restaurants and has all of the amenities of a larger community. One of the fun events in the summer is Loco Daze, a fun-filled weekend the end of July celebrating the community of Dilworth including large parade, variety shows, 5K run, adult and youth dances, various bands, spaghetti feeds, bingo and much more.
Well, there is no doubt that life in Dilworth is worth living, so if you want to move from the stress and life of big metropolitan cities while maintaining the same quality of life, it’s certainly THE RIGHT PLACE for you!!!
