Sherlock Park Neighborhood, May 1997

East Grand Forks

The photos on this and the following pages were taken by Grand Forks resident Mike Kuchar in May 1997, shortly after streets in the Sherlock Park neighborhood were reopened to traffic.

The Sherlock Park neighborhood was located just north of downtown East Grand Forks, in a low area between Sherlock Park and the river. Water reached the second floor of many homes here. This neighborhood was not rebuilt. Almost all the homes are gone now. This area may become a campground as part of the Greenway being developed along the river.
