Napoleon, ND

This is the county seat of Logan County.  The original name of this city was to be Gage City, but this attempt failed.  The townsite company was orgained and the town was named in honor of Napoleon Goodsill, the president of the company who resided in Minneapols.  The company built a little frame building which was the first building in town.  Mr. Geo. Bryant bought it later and moved in his newspaper the Napoleon Homestead.
