Building a Class Lesson

Using documents and photos to tell a focused story

the railroad comes to the northland

The Northern Pacific Railroad (NPR) discussed its plans for building a line into Dakota Territory, in its 1864 Company Charter.

The railroad comes to the northland
the rails and the land

In its report on the value of lands that the Northern Pacific received from the Federal government, the company estimated the value per acre of land, based on distance from a rail station. The report commented that actual prices would be determined “entirely by the Land Committee” of the NPR.

The rails and the land
shipping costs

An 1894 lawsuit filed by a rural bank against the Northern Pacific yielded some accurate information regarding shipping costs that were charged by the railroad.

By the 1890s farmers wanted railroads regulated by government action.

Shipping costs
profits from shipping

In 1912, the NPR’s president told an audience in St. Paul that its profits from shipping rates and passenger tickets were far less than critics charged, saying the company’s $3.5 million earnings in 1911 was “less than 1.5% return to the stockholders.”
