This was on our way to some "family history" stops and I thought it kind of nice as thisis a flood memorial and we were headed to Hinckley, Minnesota to the 1894 Fire memorial as that was a make or break of our family. Loved learning the history of this memorial and that it gets added to every so often... More

My daughter and I always start in the Memorial parking lot to use the bike trails. She is always amazed at how high the water level reached!

This is a nice park that offers a nice walk along the river. There are several areas with benches and it is a very serene location.

Interesting story behind this flood. The impact of this flood destroyed this city. But they rebuilt it all back. Shows the determination and pride of local leaders and citizens living here

This is a nice monument to take pictures by if you are a visitor at East Grand Forks. It is close to eating places .

Nice scenery here. I always love watching the river and looking at the flood lines! The path along the river is probably the most scenic thing in Grand forks so it's worth it if you're in town! :)

We were on the bike trip around the paved trail that goes around the two cities. This monument is on the bike trail right by downtown. It's hard to imagine the river that high. it was a fun stop.

This monument was placed to show anybody in Grand Forks how high the floods were in Grand Forks. This monument is already built high above the river next to it so you can really see the levels. Other than that there is not much else to see. Its right by the Minnesota border so you can cross if youd like.

It is in a very nice park on the river front and gives you an idea of how bad the flooding was at the time. Went to the brewery they actually have photos hanging on the wall showing the devastation first hand.
