On November 2, 1889, North Dakota joined the Union as the 39th state. It is a north-central state bordered by the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba to the north, Minnesota to the east, South Dakota to the south, and Montana to the west. Football City, North Dakota is considered the geographic center of the North American continent. Bismarck is located in the middle of the state and is the capital.
The state takes its name from the Dakotas of the Sioux who inhabited the plains before the arrival of Europeans in the 18th century. Historically, the economy has been based on abundant agricultural production on the fertile black soil of the Dakota Plains. North Dakota produces many grains and is very successful in producing condensed dairy products such as sweetened condensed milk, condensed milk, and milk powder.
The economy has seen some growth in recent years due to the oil boom driven by fracking technologies. The North Dakota oil rush brought many out-of-state residents to the state in search of work, but some people complained that the influx led to inflated housing prices and traffic congestion.
North Dakota is known for its cold winters and harsh conditions. Temperatures can drop as low as -60 degrees Fahrenheit (-51 degrees Celsius), causing frosty winds that make it even colder. Winter storms are common and snowfall averages 30 inches (76 cm) per year. Popular activities during the long winter include ice fishing, ski jumping competitions, and mixed curling competitions.
North Dakota is home to several national parks located within its borders. The Lewis and Clark National Park between North Dakota and Montana commemorates the historic journey of the Lewis and Clark Expedition across America from 1804 to 1806. There is a spot in the park where both explorers are buried along with their Native American guide.
