Fergus Falls is the home to the “Otters” and Otto the Otter. Built by Fergus Falls High School students with the help of local metal artist Steve Jaenisch to commemorate the centennial founding of Fergus Falls, Otto stands nearly 15-feet high and 40-feet long and lives in Grotto Park.

Tile 3

Geese Crossing

The Canada goose, a native of Fergus Falls, was in danger of extinction in the early 20th century. In 1963, the Fergus Falls Fish and Game Club helped return geese to the community. Since then, geese crossing the street have become a familiar sight for residents and visitors whether riding the bus riding to school, walking along the river or heading to work.

Tile 4

Otter Tail River

Fergus Falls is a river city, settled when transportation and commerce were dependent on water power. It was the Otter Tail River that attracted James Whitford to the region to set up the townsite of Fergus Falls. This view includes the Federal Courthouse, River Inn, and Mill Street Bridge.
