Historyedit

In 1944, the United States Congress authorized the Garrison Dam and Reservoir Project The dam was planned to be the world's largest rolled-earth filled dam and would create the second-largest reservoir in the world to collect water for irrigation and regional water needs It would form a lake 200 miles long, 14 miles wide in some places and have roughly 1,500 miles of shoreline In order to make this dam and reservoir, the towns of Sanish, Elbowoods, Lucky Mound, Shell Creek, Nishu, Charging Eagle, Beaver Creek, Red Butte, Independence, and Van Hook had to be dissolved and the residents relocated before the area was flooded A total of seven possible sites were inspected before the present site was chosen

After the site was purchased, plans were quickly developed for the proposed town With the help of Army engineers, by August 1950, the combined town site was platted On September 10, 1950, a ground-breaking ceremony and celebration was held at the proposed town site The official ground-breaking was a furrow cut by a county road grader in what was to become Main Street The first building set up was for the relocation company They held an auction to sell off lots in what was called New Town

Two days later more than sixty percent of the lots had sold The school was gifted to the town, as were lots for the relocating churches In November 1952, seventy-four voters went to the polls to elect the first city officials of New Town On January 1, 1953, the post office was established in the former office of the Relocation Company Businesses were moved from the surrounding villages, and soon people had to go to New Town for groceries and supplies The towns were officially dissolved as of April 30, 1953 July 1, 1953 was the deadline given to the residents to be moved out of their respective towns

In the fall of 1953, school opened for New Town students The New School was ready in September 1954 and dedicated April 15, 1955 The first scheduled train arrived at New Town on September 22, 1953 By 1955, the town had grown to about 1,400 residents

The discovery of oil in this part of North Dakota led to the development of oil fields in the vicinity Many new workers were attracted to the community and, with work on the new bridge, roads, and construction in the town, jobs were plentiful The bridge across the reservoir was completed in October 1955 It was named Four Bears after two great Indian chiefs, a Mandan and a Hidatsa, who bore the same name

This information was gathered from the book 'New Town 1951-1976' by James McMaster, editor of the New Town News in 1976
