Enderlin is located in picturesque southeastern North Dakota.  The townsite was purchased by Edward Pierce, acting as attorney for the Minnesota Land and Trust Company from Eleanor Olson, Ranei Gullickson and Johanna Pierce, and the official plot of the town filed October 7, 1891.

There has been much debate on the source of the town name.  The myth that it derived from "end of the line" has been exploited, for Valley City, ND was the end of the St. Paul and Sault St. Marie (Soo Line) railroad tracks in 1891.  Official Soo Line word is that it was named by Mr. F. D. Underwood, then General Manager, for a name he had seen in an English book he had read.

Enderlin is a friendly, progressive, growing community with deep ties to agriculture.  Enderlin is home to Northern Sun/ADM, North America's largest sunflower processing plant and a crew-change and yard office for the Canadian Pacific Railway.  These two along with the Enderlin Public School System and Maryhill Manor are the largest employers for the community.

Outdoor opportunties are abundant in southeast North Dakota.  Hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing, wildlife and bird watching are popular.  We invite you to come and stay a while. Enderlin is a bicycle friendly community.
