Minot Essential Info


Minot is a city in Ward County, in north central North Dakota with about 40,888 people in 2010 Census. Known as the Magic City, it's a significant rail hub (for freight, anyway). However, its location deep within North America and off the Interstate System generally means you don't see Minot if you don't plan on it.
