Summer Snow In North Dakota
In the south-east corner of North Dakota is Richland County. The county seat is the town of Wahpeton. It is located in the fertile Red River valley and attracted many settlers. The St. Paul, Minneapolis, and Manitoba Railroad was built through the town and it population grew. In 1888 Wahpeton was among the first cities in North Dakota to be electrified.
On July 11, 1912 while tyhe east coast of the US was sweltering in record heat, Wapheton experienced snow.
