The City of Crookston, (population 7,904, 2013 Census) the Polk County seat, was first settled in 1872 and incorporated as a city Feb. 14, 1879. Crookston Township was organized March 28, 1876. The city area was taken partly from this township as well as Lowell, Andover and Fairfax townships.
The Red Lake River, which flows through Crookston, provided a route from Red Lake to East Grand Forks, where it joins the Red River. Steamboats once traveled upon the Red Lake River from Grand Forks to Crookston, later only going as far as Fisher’s Landing because of hazards upstream.
Crookston’s location provides opportunities for hunting, fishing, cross-country skiing, and other outdoor activities. The community also has abundant recreational facilities, including a regulation nine-hole golf course, a three-sheet indoor ice arena, an outdoor athletic complex with multiple softball diamonds and tennis courts. Crookston has an outstanding city park system, including an indoor community swimming pool– a joint effort between the city and school. Downtown boasts Widman’s Candy Shop, recently voted the best candy store in Minnesota; the Grand Theater, which just may be the longest continually operating movie theater in the U.S.; as well as some other unique stores.
Crookston is the location of the University of Minnesota, Crookston.
The Northwest Research and Outreach Center (formerly the Northwest Experiment Station) and University of Minnesota have long been a part of Crookston. Both are located north of the city on property that was donated years ago by railroad magnate James J. Hill.

How it Works:
Buy this property in 3 Simple Steps:
STEP 1 – Click “Send Purchase Information” to make your payment and doc fee payment.
STEP 2 – The closing documents will be sent to you thereafter to review and e-sign.
STEP 3 – We will create the new deed and record the property in your name!
What costs are included in my initial investment?
– Your initial investment consists of your document processing fee which covers all of the paperwork, legal documents and recording fees involved in completing a clean and legal land transference.
Why pay cash for the property rather than making monthly payments?
– Monthly payments are a great option for anyone who wants to start investing today, but does not have plans to use their land immediately. The main reason to pay cash is for the ability to get the land transferred into your name so that you can begin using it or building on it right away. Big discounts are also available for cash buyers!
When is my first monthly payment due?
– Your first monthly payment is due approximately 30 days from the time you sign the sale contract and loan documents and submit your initial investment (aka your closing date).
What can I build or put on the property?
– Most counties have a rule against wheels (mobile homes, RVs, etc), but not all. We recommend calling the county zoning department to be sure! There are a ton of great options for foundation homes you may not have considered: tiny homes on foundations (depending on the minimum home-size allowances), modular homes, etc.
In some cases, yurts are allowed as full-time residences, as long as they have been approved by an engineer to meet building codes.
