Modern History of North Dakota

In the 20th century, the state continued to be predominantly agricultural. Farmers united in cooperatives and even organized in 1915 to protect their interests the public organization “Non-Party League”. The League advocated government control of corporate activities (including banks and railroads), thanks to which a state-owned bank, an elevator, and a flour mill were established in North Dakota.

In 1934, the construction of a new state government building was completed in Bismarck (to replace the one that had burned down four years earlier). The new Art Deco Capitol was nicknamed “the skyscraper of the prairie” and remains the tallest building in North Dakota today.

Natural disasters (including droughts and dust storms) complicated the years of the Great Depression for North Dakota farmers. Thousands of people were forced to leave their farms and move to cities or even to other states. Nevertheless, most of the residents got through the hard times safely, and the increase in demand and prices for agricultural products with the outbreak of World War II helped to stabilize the economy.

In the postwar years, infrastructure was greatly improved in North Dakota. Along with the construction of dams and military airfields, roads were also built, airlines developed new routes, and television appeared.

In the fifties of the XX century, oil was discovered in North Dakota, but only modern technology could make its production profitable. The oil boom in recent years has contributed to very low unemployment and to some extent offset the decades-long exodus of young people to the big industrial cities of the United States.
