Crookston and Polk County

Crookston is a town of about 7900 (down 4% since 2000) located at the intersection of U. S. Highways 2 and 75 in Polk County in northwest Minnesota near the border with North Dakota. The Crookston area was a hunting ground for various tribes before a town was established in 1872. Around 1876 the Great Northern Railroad came here and the town was incorporated in 1879. The town was named "Queen City" but was renamed Crookston to honor Colonel William Crooks, a soldier and railroad man. Crookston is the county seat of Polk County.
