Historyedit

A post office has been in operation at Horace since 18756 The city is named after Horace Greeley of Chappaqua, New York, editor of the New York Tribune7 Greeley encouraged western settlement with the motto "Go West, young man"8

The city is bordered on the west by the Sheyenne River, a tributary of the Red River of the North To reduce damage from seasonal flooding, which sometimes was very severe, the state and federal government collaborated on the Sheyenne Diversion Project, constructing a canal and associated support in 1990-1992 to move Sheyenne flood waters to the west and south of Horace, and north past the western side of West Fargo This has proved its worth, protecting the Sheyenne cities from damage that resulted from the large 1997 Red River Flood, which destroyed areas of Grand Forks and east Grand Forks to the north9
