This is a visitor centre that also has the wood chipper from the film Fargo. The staff are very welcoming, with plenty of information. There was also a cookies and craft sale on while we were there; it was a busy scene

I saw no significance in visiting this place. We went on a Saturday morning and there was absolutely nothing going on and I did not learn anything about Fargo. We were in and out in about 7 minutes.More
