Location of Bigfork in Itasca County and Minnesota

Bigfork, population 446, has been experiencing a steady growth and is the population and business center in the north eastern portion of Minnesota’s Itasca County. The Northeast portion of Itasca County is labeled, and is often referred to as, the "Edge of the Wilderness area.." Located in the heart of gorgeous lake country, tourism is a significant part of the economy. An active logging industry, including approximately 50 jobs at the Rajala Lumber Mill, and almost 200 jobs at the nearby Bergquist Company, a switch manufacturer, also help support a diversified retail and recreation business in the City. Bigfork is a center for rural health care, combining Bigfork Valley Hospital, Scenic Rivers Health Systems medical clinic and Northland Dental Clinic, Bigfork Valley Communities (long term care) and Bigfork Valley Villa (senior apartments) into one health care campus. The city is one of five neighboring communities that have banded together to form the "Edge of the Wilderness". This unification to help sustain economic growth is largely attributed to the governing oversight of the Northern Itasca Joint Powers Board.

History:

Bigfork originally began as a settlement when Damase "Uncle Tom" Neveaux built a log cabin on the Big Fork River, claiming the stand of pine there, and began logging activities. Though Neveaux reached the area in 1887, and the settlement began in 1892, officially, he was a squatter until the land was opened for settlement in 1900.

By 1902, a post office was established, and in 1906, a station was added to the Minneapolis and Rainy River Railway.

On January 17, 1907, less than a year after the railway stop was completed, Bigfork was incorporated as a village. Bigfork Village Hall, built in 1936 with Works Progress Administration funds, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

BIGFORK Township and its railway village are named from their location on the Big Fork River. The city of Bigfork was incorporated as a village on January 17, 1907; settlement began in 1892 when Damase Neveaux built a log cabin on the river and laid claim to a tract of pine timber. It had a station of the Minneapolis and Rainy River Railway, and the post office was established in 1902.

Like a lot of towns in Northern Minnesota, Bigfork was created by loggers, fur traders and trappers. Its largest boom was due to the major logging done in the early 20th century. This includes the CCC camps of the Roosevelt Era and local mills, including Rajala Mill Co. and Potlach, just to name a few who helped develop this area. More recently, it has been somewhat of a hub for tourism activities due to the many lakes in the area. Fishing in the summer is the main attraction, hunting in the fall, snowmobiling in the winter, and a breathtaking natural beauty in the spring.

Traveling to the Chippewa National Forest means traveling "up north". The Forest, located in the heart of northern Minnesota, is a celebration of seasons, culture, and environment. This northern hardwood forest mixes between the western prairies and the northern boreal forest to the north and east. It is a Forest with shared boundaries-red oak to white pine, wild ginger to wild rice and Canada lynx to sandhill crane. The border is also shared between governments as well, with the Chippewa National Forest working across shared borders with the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe. If you would like to learn more about what to see on the Chippewa NF, look at our informational flyers. ENJOY the Chippewa National Forest!
