About Foster County

Foster County, North Dakota was established in 1873 and is located in the south-central region of the state. It is named after John Foster, a former territorial governor of Dakota Territory. The county was originally part of the Dakota Territory, and was organized in 1883. The first settlers in the area were mostly of German and Scandinavian descent, and the county was largely agricultural. The first post office was established in 1883, and the first newspaper, the Foster County Record, was published in 1884. The county experienced a population boom in the early 1900s, due to the discovery of oil in the area. This led to the establishment of several oil-related businesses, including the Foster County Oil Company, which was founded in 1906. The county also experienced a population boom during the Great Depression, as many people moved to the area in search of work. The county's population peaked in 1940, with a total of 8,845 people. The county has experienced a decline in population since then, due to the decline of the oil industry and the out-migration of people to other parts of the state. As of 2020, the population of Foster County is estimated to be 6,845. Foster County is home to several notable attractions, including the Foster County Museum, which houses artifacts from the county's history, and the Foster County Fair, which is held annually in July. The county is also home to several lakes, including Lake Alice, which is a popular spot for fishing and boating.
