History:  

 IN THE CLOVER

Littlefork (1,153 alt., 608 pop.), on the great horseshoe bend of the river of the same name, a tributary of Rainy River, is the principal community in one of the best agricultural regions in the Minnesota Arrowhead country.

Some of the early voyageurs and explorers, no doubt, traveled over the inland waterways that now form the northern boundary of Minnesota, paddled along the Little Fork, and visited this site. The first white men known to enter the region were lumbermen who worked along the Little Fork and Big Fork rivers, floating logs down to Rainy River.

Settlers arrived about 1905 and found the region covered with fine stands of cedar, spruce, balsam, tamarack, and some white pine. Logging was the chief industry for many years, and even today a large amount of timber is hauled to the mills at International Falls (see International Falls).

As the land was cleared, agriculture developed in the fertile valley of the Little Fork River. The chief money crops, clover seed and alfalfa, yield from six to ten bushels per acre on cut-over land, and cash returns of $100 to $150 per acre are not unusual.

For many years, a lack of good roads retarded the development of Littlefork, but today it is the second largest community in Koochiching County, and the market and trade center for the district. A potato wholesale association, organized for cooperative shipping, maintains a warehouse. Littlefork has two schools, a high (north end Main St.) and an elementary (Main St. bet. 6th and 7th Sts.).

There is good hunting for bear and deer, and for pintail and ruffed grouse. The 100-foot tower of the State Ranger Station (3rd St. bet. State 65 and Main St.) affords a fine view of the surrounding territory.

A 19-mile graveled shortcut connects Littlefork with Ray on US 53.
