Grand Forks in Grand Forks County, North Dakota — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
Thomas D. Campbell, Jr. was born in the house in 1882. He graduated from Central High School and the University of North Dakota and later became famous for building 95,000 acre wheat farm near Hardin, Montana on land rented from members of the Crow Indian Reservation. He passed away in 1966.
Campbell's heirs transferred ownership of the house to the Grand Forks County Historical Society in 1971. It opened for tours later that year after extensive restoration.
