Geography:

East Grand Forks is located in the fertile Red River Valley. The area around East Grand Forks is prime for agricultural uses. The Red River Valley used to be a part of glacial Lake Agassiz. This made the land fertile and very flat.

The Red Lake River divides East Grand Forks into two main sections. The main part of town, located north of the river, is the home of the downtown area as well as several residential neighborhoods. The area south of the river is known as "The Point." This is because the land forms a narrow point shape (almost peninsular) where the Red and Red Lake rivers meet. "The Point" contains more residential development.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 12.9 km˛ (5.0 mi˛), all land.

History:  

EAST GRAND FORKS, a city in Grand Forks and Rhinehart Townships, incorporated as a city March 7, 1887, is on the east side of the Red River, opposite the city of Grand Forks, N.D., where the confluence of the large Red Lake River with the upper part of the Red River presents two navigable courses or forks for ascending boats. The city began after the Civil War as a trading center and stopping-off place for Red River cart teamsters going between St. Paul and Winnipeg; the St. Paul, Minneapolis and Manitoba Railroad came in 1880. The city was first known as Nashville when the post office opened in 1874, for William C. Nash, fur trader and government mail carrier between Abercrombie and Pembina; the name changed to East Grand Forks in 1883. Nash was born in Pennsylvania and came to the area in 1863, securing the mail contract in 1864, and was postmaster of Tillia, 1872-73. Regular flooding of the rivers has caused difficulties for the community. After a devastating flood in 1997, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built levees along the Red River to protect the cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks; the land between the levees was designated as the Greenway, to be developed as a recreational area. In 2000, the Minnesota legislature established the Red River State Recreation Area on the state-managed portion of Greenway lands.
