"Why Pay Rent in the East When Your Cash Rental There For One Year Will Buy A Farm Here That Will Make You Rich in Five Years?"

Scarce early-20th century map of North Dakota, published for the Maas Land Agency, Lidgerwood, North Dakota, to promote settlement and investment in that town in southeastern North Dakota.

An interesting map from a period of large-scale immigration to North Dakota. The folder includes promotion text:

There has never been a time in the history of America when the man who hopes to own a farm of his own needs to act so promptly and with such a firm determination to succeed as now. In a few years it will be too late. Each succeeding month the most desirable lands are being taken. Each new settler fills a gap and sends the next comer out farther from the railroads, back farther from the streams, into newer sections and farther from the markets...

The map and others like it were evidently quite successful, as the population of Lidgerwood rose from 575 in 1900 to 1,019 in 1910, according to the U.S. Census.
