Englevale, North Dakota

The town of Englevale was originally named Marshall after land owner Marshall T Davis. It was later renamed for Mathias L Engel who was a promoter for the community. In 1913, Englevale had a 4 year high school. At this time, there were 4 elevators, one of which burned down in 1915. The other three were the Andrews Grain Co, the Monarch Elevator Co, & a local cooperative. These remained in business until the early 1940’s.

Other businesses in 1913 included two stores, a combination pool hall/restaurant, another pool hall/soft drink parlor, two blacksmith shops, two garages, a state bank, post office, lumberyard, and two produce and cream buying stations. At one point, Englevale had three churches. The Woodman Lodge built a recreation hall, Standard Oil built a bulk station and Mr. Avery of Fort Ransom operated a horse drawn freight line between Englevale and Fort Ransom.

It too was a town that was hit very hard by population loss and better roads that took most of its business to larger towns.
